    Default 7 firefighters trapped

    Mount Vernon NY, 7 firefighters were trapped in the rear of a storefront bakery when a false ceiling collapsed in the front of the store. members were trapped for about 4 minutes in the rear of the structure until they were able to knock the fire down and crawl to the front of the store via a void that a display case made from the collapsed ceilinf. the fire apparantly started in the rear kitchen and extended above the false ceiling which consisted if 2x4's and glued on ceiling panels. rear exits could not be located due to the heavy smoke condition because of the collapse.
