Lewisboro, NY (March 15, 2019) – A house fire that was reported on Smith Ridge Road Wednesday, March 13, left the homeowner with serious burn injuries, according to authorities. Firefighters and police arrived at the scene after the fire broke out at an unspecified time in the town of Lewisboro.
The fire was discovered by police who were called to the area due to reports of a man running through the neighborhood for unknown reasons. The home on Smith Ridge Road was discovered to be fully engulfed in flames, prompting responses from firefighters and emergency medical crews. The homeowner, identified as 58-year-old Stephen McMahon, was reported to have been found in nearby woods and suffering from burn wounds.
McMahon did not appear to be mentally sound as he became combative with medical responders who were eventually able to transport him to Westchester Medical Center. No further information has been provided as authorities are currently investigating the cause of the fire.
