Boil Water Advisory in effect for Newport following Main Street fire

By WKTV News

NEWPORT, N.Y. (WKTV) - Three fire departments responded to a report of a house fire in the Village of Newport on Monday afternoon.

Officials said that there were two people inside the home at 7420 Main Street when the fire broke out shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Monday, but both were able to get out safely.

The fire reportedly started in a bedroom, but firefighters made quick work of the flames and the house was not too badly damaged. There is no word as of this writing as to what caused the fire.

Fire crews from the Newport Fire Department, Middleville Fire Department and Poland Fire Department all responded to the scene.

A Boil Water Advisory is in effect for the entire Village of Newport until further notice as a result of this afternoon's Main Street fire. Village Mayor Tom Roberts says that due to the village's ongoing water project, there is low water pressure throughout the village. When this is combined with the use of water from fire hydrants, the village must automatically issue a boil water advisory.
