The Auburn Fire Department is investigating a bathroom closet fire at a Cayuga Centers residence on 202 Franklin St. Monday night. It is the second fire at that home in less than a month.
Assistant Fire Chief Mark Fritz said there were no injuries, but four staff members and five youth residents had to be relocated to the organization's main campus on Hamilton Avenue due to extreme weather conditions. The building was deemed uninhabitable last night, but Fritz said repairs were underway Tuesday.
The fire was called in at 6:17 p.m. Monday. Fritz said it was contained to the first-floor bathroom.
"It is currently under investigation because normally fires don't start in closets in bathrooms," he said.
