Yates County home ‘a total loss’ after fire

A home on Italy Turnpike Road was “basically a total loss” after a fire Tuesday afternoon, according to Naples Fire Chief Patrick Elwell.

The cause of the fire, which Elwell said apparently started in the building’s rear in the area of a utility/laundry room and bedroom, is under investigation by Yates County Emergency Management.

Naples firefighters were on the scene at 280 Italy Turnpike Road at 3:55 p.m., within 8 minutes of receiving the report of the fire, Elwell said. Upon arrival, they saw flames showing in the rear section and smoke throughout the structure.
