CHADWICKS, NY (UPDATED) – Multiple fire crews were called to Collins Knoll Farm in Chadwicks early Friday morning after officials say equipment inside a barn caught fire.
Assistant Chief Noel Ames says Willowvale Fire Company arrived to the scene on Elm Street around 6:15 a.m. to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the barn. A second engine was called in to supply water.
Soon after, the Clayville Fire Department responded with their aerial truck and rescue, while New Hartford Fire Department also arrived to supply water to the aerial.
Ames says firefighters couldn’t go into the structure because of various pressurized tanks inside, so they started attacking the roof first.
The fire was under control by 7 a.m.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
