A fire broke out early Monday afternoon at a building under construction at Yeshiva of Spring Valley girls’ school, on Grandview Avenue in Monsey. There were no injures, Baruch Hashem.

It is believed that the fire was caused by a piece of machinery at the yeshiva building’s extension, currently under construction.

The girls were evacuated from their building, and Rockland Chaveirim members brought school buses for the girls to sit in, as temperatures outside were near-freezing.

Some girls sat on the buses, while others went to a nearby shul, for approximately an hour, before authorities allowed them back into their building at around 1:30 p.m.
