It took firefighters from four different counties to battle a garage fire that spread to another garage, and a home at an address in the village of Cato on Friday.
The call came in around 2:20 pm for a garage fire at 2527 West Mechanic Street; and less than 15 minutes later – it had spread to a neighboring garage, and home. While no one was injured, heavy smoke was reported throughout the area.
An hour later, the fire was reported out by firefighters. However, first responders didn’t leave the scene for several hours.
Firefighters from Cato, Ira, Conquest, Weedsport, Port Byron, Victory, Aurelius, Jordan, Red Creek, Hannibal, Lysander, Plainville and Baldwinsville all responded to the scene. Cayuga County Emergency Management, the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, Cimvac Ambulance and Fair Haven Village Ambulance were also on-scene, according to the Auburn Citizen.
