The Village of Homer Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire on Sunday (November 13th) around 1:45 in the afternoon on Route 41A.
The call came in from a Three Town Fire Chief (located in Cayuga County) who was passing through the area. Cortlandville and Sempronius Fire Departments were also called to assist Homer in the structure fire. Preble and Truxton Fire Departments also were requested to aid in coverage in the Homer area as they fought the fire.
The location of the hunting cabin was a challenge for firefighters due to it being located a significant way away from the road. When fire crews made it to the scene of the fire, the building was already a total loss and had burned to the ground. Remaining flames and hotspots were extinguished and the salvage/overhaul process began.
No injuries were reported during the structure fire and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
