Multiple departments responded to a structure fire yesterday (March 18) morning on West Main Street in Dryden.
Dryden Fire Chief Mike Hall says his team was dispatched to the scene at 35 West Main just after 11:00 yesterday morning where heavy fire and smoke were coming out of the second floor and attic areas of a multi-family home.
Mutual aid showed up minutes later and it took crews about a half hour of aggressive firefighting to completely extinguish the blaze.
Thankfully, all occupants of that home made it out safely with not injuries thanks to help from those first responders.
The cause of that fire is still under investigation and the displaced residents are now being assisted by the American Red Cross.
Dryden Fire Department was assisted on scene by Dryden Ambulance, Freeville Fire, McLean Fire, Groton Fire, Cortlandville Fire Departments, Dryden Police, Village of Dryden DPW, Town of Dryden Code, NYSEG, NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control and the Virgil Fire Department provided additional coverage while members were on scene
