Dozens of firefighters endured below-zero wind chills as they battled a blaze in Endwell.

The fire in a single-family house at 3802 Country Club Road was reported around 8:55 a.m. Wednesday.

Endwell fire chief Michael Battaglini told WNBF News there was an active fire on a porch at the rear of the structure when the first units arrived.

An assistant chief called for a second alarm even before he made it to the scene because of the volume of smoke generated by the blaze.

Battlaglini said the fire quickly spread from the porch into the house, going up to the second floor.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
