Around 1:30pm Thursday afternoon, the Brooktondale Fire Department was dispatched to a reported house fire in the area of the 1600 block of Slaterville Road in the Town of Dryden.
As crews were in route, Tompkins County 9-1-1 reported to firefighters they were now receiving multiple reports of a fully involved house fire. Brooktondale Fire then requested additional aid from surrounding departments. Upon arrival, crews confirmed the working structure fire and a second alarm was issued.
Multiple Fire Departments throughout the area responded including the City of Ithaca, Dryden, Cortlandville, Danby, McLean, and Varna. The fire was eventually extinguished with firefighters able to save one side of the building.
