Newark Valley Fire On 04.05.14, Investigators Find Cause . . .

A house in Tioga County, New York is ruled a total loss after a two-alarm fire ripped through the second floor of a home on April 5, 2014. The call came in around 11 a.m. Saturday morning for a structure fire at 1163 Tarbox Lane in Newark Valley.

Tioga County Investigators say the Saturday morning fire started in the chimney and quickly spread to the walls.

It was reported that the home’s sole occupant, an elderly woman, was not home when the fire broke out.
Firefighters were unable to safely enter the house in efforts to control the blaze. Firefighting crews kept to a defensive mode approach of fighting the fire with hose lines at two rear corners of the house.

Firefighting crews arrived on scene and the roof of the house had already collapsed, which forced the crews into a defensive attack.
Fire departments from Union Center, Berkshire, Maine, and West Corners were called in to assist the Newark Valley Fire Department get water to the fire ground, and assisted with fighting this structural fire.
