2-Alarm Fire; Barton New York – 11.19.14

Multiple crews were called out the to the structure fire at 24 Frost Hollow Road in Barton, New York just before noon at 11:20 am Wednesday.

Tioga Center Fire & Squad and Halsey Valley Fire Company responded to the fire at an old gun shop in Tioga County and there was an explosion, according to the Tioga Center Fire Department. After arriving firefighting crews on the fireground reported a fully involved structure fire, and there was an explosion which blew debris onto the road.

Additional call out for manpower was called for and a water tanker from Nichols Fire Department, along with Waverly Barton Fire Department responded.

Tioga Center First Assistant Fire Chief Art Mayer said, a man was currently living in the home, which was a former gun shop, and his father owns it.

The home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, so the only thing they could do, First Assistant Fire Chief Mayer said, was get as much water on the home as possible.

There were no injuries at the fire scene, but the building is a total loss.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
