One house destroyed by late-night fire along Cayuga Lake, second home suffers damage (video & photos)

One home was completely destroyed and another suffered damage after a fire in Union Springs late-Friday.

The call came in around 8 p.m. as a structure fire, and shortly after first responders arrived on-scene radio traffic indicated that the fire spread to a neighboring structure.

As daylight broke on Fire Lane 21 on Saturday little was left of the charred structure. The address of the house fire was identified as 61 Fire Lane 21.

By 9 p.m. crews from multiple departments had the blaze out- and overhaul was in progress. However, crews remained on scene for hours.

Altogether nearly a dozen departments and agencies responded to the fire including Cayuga, Throop, Aurora, Aurelius, Montezuma, Fleming, Scipio and Waterloo fire departments. First responders from Auburn also responded.

No official word on investigation status had been released by Union Springs or Cayuga County officials as of Saturday afternoon. This story will be updated when an official report is released.
