The Griff Restaurant and Pub building destroyed by flames
ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - Fire crews remain on the scene after flames ripped through The Griff Restaurant and Pub early Wednesday morning. The call came in around 2:30 a.m. The fire was so large, it could be seen from Route 49. When our crews arrived on the scene, a portion of the building had already collapsed. No word on whether anyone was inside when the fire broke out, but we have gotten reports that a firefighter may have been injured. The building appears to be a total loss. Also, Rome Free Academy is on a 2-Hour Delay possibly due to a water shortage.
