POMONA - Several people are homeless after a fire sparked at a Rockland County home suspected of having illegal apartments.

No one was injured in the fire, which ignited Wednesday in a home on Route 45. Authorities say the fire does not appear to be suspicious, but they are investigating into whether there is illegal subdivision within the building. The owners of the house have been cited for illegal apartments in the past.

A woman who would not identify herself, but says she lives inside the building, says it is a one-family home. The owners reportedly say everything in the building is currently up to code.

However, Rockland Fire Coordinator Gordon Wren says there is still evidence of illegal conditions.
