Fully involved structure fire in Russia

By WKTV News

RUSSIA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Multiple departments are being called to a structure fire at 206 Grant Road in the Town of Russia. Our crew on the scene says a barn and a house are fully involved.

Crews from Poland, Barneveld, Prospect, Deerfield, Salisbury and many others are being called to the scene.

The flames were shooting across the road. One crew's sole job is to spray water on the house across the road so that would not catch fire.

Trees in the area and a telephone pole are also on fire. About fifty specators were in the area.

There were several ambulances on the scene.

It is unclear if there are any animals at this farm but NEWSChannel 2 was at this same address back in May- where a farm worker was gored by a bull.

NEWSChannel 2 is planning live coverage beginning at 5am with the very latest information.

State Police are also on the scene of an accident that happened on the same road at nearly the same time as the fire. An emergency management technician on the scene tells us the jaws of life were called in to extricate a passenger from the vehicle. No officials word yet on their condition.
