OSSINING, N.Y. -- Here are the top stories from the week in Ossining.
- A fire on Secor Road in Ossining displaced 11 people Monday morning, police said. The fire likely started at around 6 a.m. in the basement of the two story home at 25 Secor Road, Ossining Police said Monday. There were no injuries in the blaze, but at least 11 people were left without a home, police said. The Village of Ossining is investigating the building to see if residents were living there illegally.
- It has been more than seven years since the Town of Ossining has had a foreclosure auction, but that is about to change in August. An auction of foreclosed properties is to be held at 1 p.m. on Aug. 14, at the Ossining Town/Village Municipal Building,16 Croton Ave. in Ossining. The town "rarely takes properties, because the Town Tax Office assiduously assists taxpayers in getting all delinquent taxes paid before the town takes a Judgment of Foreclosure," Ossining representatives said in a news release.
- Ossining's Angela Leis will not only be the first member of her family to attend college, but she'll also be going with a scholarship. Ossining-based Latino U College Access, a nonprofit group aimed at providing opportunities for Latino students to attend college, recently announced Bedford's Kevin Tejada and Leis as the students chosen as the first "College Bound Scholars" award winners , according to a press release. Leis is an Ossining High School graduate heading to SUNY New Paltz and Kevin Tejada is a Fox Lane High School graduate who will attend Bates College this fall.
