    Unhappy North Bellmore, NY Fatal New Year's Fire

    NORTH BELLMORE, N.Y. (AP) - A New Year's Day house fire killed
    an elderly woman and her bedridden adult son, authorities said.
    Nassau County Police identified the victims as Christine Mastil,
    82, and her son, 54-year-old David Mastil. Published reports said
    David Mastil had Down syndrome and other health problems.
    Firefighters were called to the family's Rosemont Street home at
    about 11:22 a.m. Thursday.
    The blaze appeared to have started on the ground floor of the
    home, according to Chief Nicholas White of the North Bellmore Fire
    Department. The mother was found at her son's bedside, White said.
    Christine Mastil's husband, identified by police as 82-year-old
    Max Mastil, was taken to Nassau University Medical Center with
    smoke inhalation and burns.
    The blaze was brought under control in about an hour, White
    said. Three firefighters were treated for minor burns and smoke
