Fire Damages Johnson City Apartment House
A two-family residence in Johnson City sustained moderate damage due to a fire.
Authorities say the blaze in the two-and-a-half story garage apartment building at 105 Theron Street was reported shortly before 6:30 Saturday evening.
According to village fire marshal Paul Hlebica, a neighbor saw smoke and called 911. No one was in the house at the time of the blaze.
When firefighters arrived, heavy black smoke was coming from the doorway of a second-floor apartment. Fire crews entered the burning structure and located the fire in the rear of the building.
The blaze was extinguished after 30 minutes. Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour. No injuries were reported.
A kitchen and bedroom on the second floor were damaged by the fire. Both apartments sustained some smoke and water damage.
The blaze did not appear to be suspicious. Fire investigators were working to determine the cause.
The Red Cross was called to provide housing assistance to those displaced by the fire.
