nursing home fire

A New York assisted-living facility caught fire and partially collapsed early Tuesday, leaving at least one person dead and others injured, according to officials. One firefighter is also missing as of Tuesday morning.

The fire started around 1 a.m. at Evergreen Court Home for Adults in Spring Valley, about 30 miles north of New York City. Firefighters arrived at the scene and began to evacuate residents.

20 to 25 residents were rescued and about 20 were taken to local hospitals, Rockland County Fire Coordinator Chris Kear said. Two firefighters were also taken to area hospitals.

One resident was pronounced dead at the hospital and several others had injuries described as serious, Kear said. One of the firefighters has been released.

The missing firefighter was attempting to rescue a resident form the third floor but “got lost in the conditions” and issued a mayday call, Kear said. The firefighter remains unaccounted for as of Tuesday morning.

“The mayday was answered. However, with the extent of the fire, the volume of fire, the conditions were just too unbearable where firefighters went in, they just could not locate the firefighter and they headed back out,” Kear told reporters on Tuesday.

The fire continued to burn at Evergreen Court more than eight hours later. Witnesses said the fire could be seen for miles.

Kear said the building was a “total loss” and did not release details on the cause of the fire.

Biden Administration shipping thousands of baby formula pallets to border while our shelves are empty

Border

American Democrats won’t spend money to secure our borders but will send billions of dollars to Ukraine to help them secure theirs, and now they are taking away the little baby formula that’s left and giving that away, too.

As photos and videos of stores across the country that haven no more baby formula in stock are going viral on social media, Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammack made a shocking discovery. According to Cammack and reported by Townhall, “pallets of baby formula have been delivered by the Biden Administration as store shelves go bare.”

“Biden is sending pallets of baby formula to the border. Meanwhile, store shelves across America are empty and moms are being told they don’t know when more is coming in. Welcome to Biden’s America where American moms and dads are last,” Cammack posted on Facebook. “What is infuriating to me is that this is another example of an America last agenda. Pallets [of baby formula]”.

“The American government is sending by the pallet, thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border,” she said in a video.

Border Patrol agents have been instructed not to take baby formula home for their own children.
