Structural Fire; Multiple Fire Crews Respond; 2473 Gaskill Rd. in Campville Fire District 11.07.14

Tioga County Fire Control dispatched Campville Fire Department to respond to 2473 Gaskill Rd. in the Campville New York Fire District, at 10:02 a.m. Friday morning for a fully involve garage fire.

Mutual-aid request was called for from the Owego Fire Department, and responded a fire engine to the fire scene along with it’s cascade air system. Also responding were the South Side Fire Company with two tankers, a tanker reponded from Newark Valley Fire department, and an engine company from West Corners Fire Department. Tioga County Fire Investigation responded to the fire scene also.

The fire destroyed the detached garage and all its contents which included trucks, lawnmowers and snow-blowers. Firefighting crews were able to prevent flames from reaching the nearby house.

"It did melt the siding of the home but it was a detached garage, so that was fully engulfed," said Assistant Fire Chief Diana Ford from Campville Fire Department. "We got a great knock down and saved the home, so that was our goal."

Firefighters had the structure in flames under control within an hour, and around 11:30 a.m., the fire was mostly out.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the Tioga County fire investigators.
