The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office has provided an update on a fire in the town of Ovid where a dog was rescued by first responders.

The call came in around 8 a.m. on January 27th for a structure fire on County Road 129.


Deputies were able to quickly extinguish the fire, which was localized around the front doorway. A dog was discovered inside the residence and safely removed by first responders.

The residence was then fully-cleared and no other occupants were found.

The homeowner, identified as Derek Steen, was not present at the time of the fire. There was no insurance on the home.

Deputies were assisted on scene by South Seneca Ambulance, Seneca County Codes and the Seneca County Fire Investigation Team. The responding Fire Agencies were Lodi Fire, and Interlaken Fire.
