House destroyed by fire in Canisteo, one treated for smoke inhalation

A house fire late last week was made worse by windy conditions, according to first responders in Canisteo.

It happened at 5 Stewart St. in the village around 10:25 a.m.

Two individuals lived at the two-story house. One of them was treated for smoke inhalation.


When they escaped the home- the door was left open, which allowed the wind to blow the flames through it.

Firefighters say the second story came down onto the first- causing it to be a total loss.

No life-threatening injuries were reported.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
