Two Endicott Residents Homeless Following Fire
Endicott Fire Department officials say two people were forced into the cold when a blaze broke out in their apartment.
The fire at 410½ Jackson Avenue was reported around 3:15 p.m. Thursday.
Endicott firefighters brought the blaze under control in about ten minutes. No injuries were reported.
Village fire marshal Brian Botsford said there are four units in the two story building.
Botsford said the blaze broke out in the kitchen of an apartment on the first floor. He said it was caused by a malfunctioning refrigerator.
Fire damaged was confined primarily to the kitchen. The Red Cross was called to assist the two residents of the apartment.
Broome County property records show the building is owned by CSBW Realty of Monsey, New York.
