Upon arrival, multiple fire departments collaborated to swiftly douse the flames. An elderly woman, who was in the house when the fire ignited, managed to exit safely and immediately dialed 911. She incurred no injuries from the incident.

The Seneca County Fire Investigation team has since examined the scene to pinpoint the fire’s origin. Preliminary findings suggest that an unattended outdoor candle was the probable cause. The house, unfortunately, suffered damage due to the fire.
