From the Daily News:
Stanley and Vita Barth lived in their Floral Park home for 57 years until a gas explosion next door turned their house into a hazard on Friday.
Now, the Barths are in a race against time to get back inside their charred home to salvage what they can - including photo albums and 200-year-old Jewish artifacts - before it's demolished.
The city had previously refused to let them in, saying the house is structurally unsafe and should be razed immediately.
However, the city has consented to meet with the family today and coordinate sending representatives - or the Barths - in to retrieve the family's belongings.
