On Sunday firefighters were called to 56 Liberty Street in Bath for the report of a structure fire.
Chief Matt Glashauser says smoke was showing from the three story building, with apartments on the upper two floors, and businesses on the first.
A second alarm brought The Bath VA, Kanona, Hammondsport, Pultney to the scene for additional manpower. Bath Ambulance and AMR Advanced Life support were also called; along with Bath Electric Gas and Water to shut off utilities.
One person had to be airlifted after they were found inside one of the smoke and fire-filled rooms by firefighters.
After firefighters put the fire out – and prevented it from spreading further – an investigation team was called in to determine the cause. The Red Cross was called to the scene as well.
The building has not yet been deemed safe.
