Firefighters called back to Seneca Falls blaze after house reignites overnight (video)

Firefighters from several area departments were called to a blaze on State Street during the late-afternoon hours on Tuesday.

Around 5:30 p.m. fire departments and first responders from Seneca, Ontario, and Wayne counties convened on a two-story home along State Street, which had become fully-engulfed.

At the time of the fire, reports indicated that the blaze was first reported in the basement of the structure, before spreading to the rest of the home.

The Seneca Falls Fire Department posted the following message to its Facebook page:

“On behalf of the Seneca Falls Volunteer Fire Department we would like to thank the Fayette, Waterloo, and Aurelius Fire Departments who assisted us on scene this evening at the working house fire on State St and to Clyde and Border City Fire Departments for providing station coverage. We would also like to thank the Seneca County Fire Coordinators, the Seneca County Fire Investigation Team, North Seneca Ambulance, Nyseg, and the Seneca County 911 dispatchers for also assisting us this evening. Fortunately there were no fatalities or injuries. Job well done by all.”

Firefighters were called back during the overnight hours after the blaze reignited. Around 1:45 a.m. firefighters were back State Street as flames could be seen coming from the roof of the structure.
