To the Editor:
We would like to take this opportunity to commend both the East Berne and Berne volunteer fire departments for their unbelievably quick response to a 911 call to a fire at our home.
The flames at 1640 Helderberg Trail damaged the rear side of the building, just a few yards away from others just above the Fox Creek.
Advanced Car Wash on Voorheesville Avenue is closed after a fire broke out Friday and damaged equipment.
A garage on Western Avenue now stands gutted, as the call for responders came as flames were shooting through the roof in the early morning hours of Thursday, Jan. 8.
Just before Christmas, two fires forced Guilderland residents from their homes.
After a kitchen fire last month, the family's home on Bradt Hollow Road is uninhabitable as they stay in a family member's house.
When firefighters arrived to a house on fire Tuesday morning in New Scotland, there were already flames through the roof. A pond at Camp Pinnacle, about two miles away, was used for water.
One tenant was taken to the hospital for treatment, and a firefighter was treated for an injury at the scene.
The cause of an accessory building fire was not officially determined on Wednesday. Knox Fire Chief Bill Vinson said the building appeared to be used for storage and mechanical work and stood about 50 feet away from the nearest house.
