A fast-moving fire  forced dozens out into the cold in Peekskill Thursday.

Flames broke out in a two-story building at the Hudson View Estates.

Making matters worse, a  fire hydrant turned up dry.

At one point, tanker trucks had to be called in to help fight the flames. But the problems didn’t end there.

No word on the cause of the fire.
