Multiple Fire Department Respond To A House Fire 10.26.14

A structure fire in Apalachin was reported just after 5:00 p.m. Sunday evening on 55 Glann Road. The fire was under control about two hours later.

The house was unoccupied, and was left with significant damage inside a home

Apalachin Fire Department Assistant Fire Chief Steve Luker said, "There's significant damage to the house, the homeowner will have to spend some time and a little rehab should be able to reoccupy the house in a little while." 

Assistant Fire Chief Luker also stated that arriving fire crews, went into immediate attack mode as soon as they arrived, "It's standard protocol for us to bring in multiple agencies in order for us to make sure we have enough man power and enough trucks here when we have an unknown condition," said Luker. "So what you saw was a lot of our agencies working together as our team work that we always practice to do."

There are no injuries reported.

Apalachin Fire Department, Campville Fire Department, West Corners Fire Department and Tioga County Fire Investigation teams responded  and were on scene at the fireground.
