On Saturday around 1:54 p.m. Seneca County 911 received multiple calls reporting a brush fire near a building at the Stanton Meadows Apartment complex along Rt. 5&20 in Seneca Falls.
Police responded with the Seneca Falls Fire Department, determining that the brush fire had spread to the front of a building, which upgraded the call to a structure fire.
Additional mutual aid was called in from Waterloo, Canoga, and Geneva.
Police officers were able to deploy ire extinguishers from their car which knocked down the fire- preventing it from spreading further.
The fire department was able to extinguish the rest of the fire, preventing git from doing any more damage.
Police said there were no injuries and no one displaced due to the fire.
However, a 24-year-old Seneca Falls woman was arrested after that structure fire on charges unrelated to the fire itself.
Around 2:20 p.m. police arrested Railyn Rogers, 24, of Seneca Falls.
Police say Rogers created a public inconvenience, annoyance, and alarm by screaming in the public parking lot. Rogers is accused of using profane and abusive language.
After being warned to cease and failing to do so- Rogers was told she was under arrest, according to police, who say she kicked an officer and spit in their face.
Rogers was charged with three counts of disorderly conduct, harassment, and resisting arrest.
She was processed and will answer the charges at a later date. No injuries were reported in the secondary incident.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
