BOONVILLE N.Y.-After nearly six months and then a delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, the site of the Boonville January Block fire has been cleared.
NEWSChannel 2 stopped by the site of the fire on Main Street Friday.
Boonville Mayor Eric McIntyre says the City of Rome was instrumental in arranging for the debris to be removed.
The Village also worked with the Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority.
NEWSChannel 2 spoke with Boonville Resident Jake Freeman who says it feels good see the site cleaned up so the community can move on.
"It's just nice to see it cleaned up because, it did happen quite a while ago. I understand that there's certain precautions you have to take especially in this time, and since there was maybe asbestos in there, and all that different stuff is needed. I can understand that it's taken that long, but it's just nice to see that it's been cleaned up. Looks a lot better." said Freeman.
No word yet on what is next for the site, but NEWSChannel 2 will stay on the story.
