Also on Monday, there was a fire in the 6th floor laundry room of the Regatta apartment complex on Mamaroneck Avenue. According to Village of Mamaroneck Chief Craig Casterella, the fire was caused by a buildup of lint in between the 5th and 6th floor shaft which caused the fire to spread to the roof. There was concern for the residents who didn’t evacuate quickly enough. Thankfully, there were no reported injuries and everyone was evacuated safely to the Village conference room. Due to the fire, all of the laundry rooms at the Regatta are unavailable until further notice.
