Firefighters in Penn Yan were called to the Knapp Hotel building downtown on Sunday for the report of a fire.

It’s unclear how much damage was caused, but a firetruck with ladder was at the scene around 3 p.m.

No fire could be seen from the outside of the building.  The area remained congested for a period of time.
