Windsor House Destroyed By Fire
One firefighter was taken to a hospital after battling a blaze at a house in Windsor.
The fire at 333 Old Route 17 was reported at 7:59 a.m. Monday.
Windsor first assistant fire chief John McNulty says the residents of the home were away.
McNulty says a passerby initially spotted the blaze in the single-story house.
Windsor firefighters were assisted by units from Deposit, Harpursville, Ouaquaga, West Windsor and Five Mile Point.
McNulty says a Windsor firefighter was transported from the scene for treatment of possible exhaustion and dehydration. No other injuries were reported.
The floor in the center of the house collapsed. Although the house was destroyed, firefighters were able to save an attached garage.
It took almost three hours to bring the fire under control.
McNulty says there were preliminary indications the fire may have been caused by an electrical problem. Broome County fire investigators were called to the scene.
