Massive structure fire destroys multi-family home in Williamson

Firefighters in Wayne County were dispatched to a major structure fire during the overnight hours in Williamson.


What witnesses described as a multi-family home burst into flames before midnight.

When first responders arrived on-scene the home was fully-engulfed. As result of the blaze, the structure was completely destroyed.

There were early reports that one person had been transported to an area hospital with burns, but the full-extent of injuries to those at the home on Route 21 were not confirmed.

The site of the fire is located fairly close to the Post Office.
