Endicott Fire Update: Hoarding Condition Hampered Fight

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Firefighters from several departments spent most of March 18th at the scene of a two-alarm blaze at a two family, four-story home on Roosevelt Avenue in Endicott.

Officials said there were hoarding conditions in the house that helped fuel the fire that started in the basement and spread through the entire house.

Fire crews from five departments were called to the building at 8:36 a.m. and smoke could still be seen rising from the burned-out structure after noon.

There were no injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

 

Officials said they could not aggressively fight the fire inside the house since items in some areas were piled from floor to ceiling, making access impossible.

 

The fire was finally reported under control after three hours but crews were on the scene through the afternoon dousing hot spots.

 

The building is a total loss.
