CALEDONIA – A fire burned through part of a Caledonia home on Feely Road near Lacey Road Thursday night.
According to first responders on scene, the fire began in the back of the house. The emergency call went out at about 9:15 p.m.
“I and others who were first on scene arrived to find heavy fire in the back of the structure,” said RJ Kantowski, Deputy Chief of the Caledonia Fire Department. “A neighbor advised us that the house was occupied. That person made it out of the structure and the ambulance has reported no injuries to the occupant or any firefighters.”
Several fire departments converged on the scene and put the fire out, but not before the fire badly damaged the house.
“It was a fairly quick knock-down, but the fire did travel through a back porch area and into the structure,” said Kantowski. “Obviously the house will not be liveable tonight. Further investigation will determine if the resident can return to the house later.”
The Livingston County Office of Emergency Management is currently investigating to identify a cause of the fire.
Firefighters with the Caledonia, Mumford, York and East Avon Fire Departments responded to the scene. The LeRoy Fire Department later responded to provide additional manpower.
