FLOYD, N.Y. – The Floyd Volunteer Fire Department responded to a basement fire Thursday morning, and were able to stop the flames from spreading to the upstairs of the home.
Crews were called to the scene on Kriswood Drive around 6:30 a.m.
Fire Chief Dan Schwertfeger said everyone made it out of the home, but there was a dog still inside when firefighters arrived. They were able to get the dog out unharmed.
“There was a dog in the upstairs part of the apartment. We got the dog out with no problem,” he said.
The fire seems to have started in the back of the basement, and crews were able to extinguish it quickly.
“It was a basement fire. It started in the back corner. We put a line through the front door down to the cellar. Got a good hit on it. Once we cleared the smoke got everything evacuated out of there,” said Schwertfeger.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
