The Canandaigua Police Department is investigating with the assistance of the New York State Police and the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.

The Canandaigua Fire Department responded to a two-alarm fire first reported this morning as a “strong smell of burning” at the Camelot Court Apartments.

Upon arrival just after 11 a.m., firefighters reported that they entered a building and called for a second alarm requesting additional responders. They then knocked the fire down fairly quickly.
