Firefighters battle Yeshiva blaze, students away at funeral 

Firefighters battled a monster five-alarm blaze
at a Yeshiva complex in the Town of Thompson Thursday night while
students were safely downstate paying respects after the death of a
Hasidic leader.

Crews fought the fire at 168
Gibber Road, the former Gibber Hotel, for several hours as it made its
way through the large three-story building. The fire appears to have
started in the upper stories of the former hotel and spread quickly
through dorm rooms now used as a religious school, Monticello Fire Chief Marc Friedland said.
