Two people were arrested after a fire in Seneca Falls this week.
Around 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday the Seneca Falls Fire Department responded to an outdoor fire.
The first firefighter on-scene reported being unable to access the fire because a man was threatening to physically harm him.
When police arrived another man was shouting threats toward firefighters.
Jack Harris, 25, of Weedsport was charged with obstruction, coercion, and harassment. Wayne Purnell, 25, of Seneca Falls was charged with harassment and disorderly conduct.
Both were taken to Seneca County Correctional Facility for arraignment. An order of protection was requested for the victim.
