Abandoned motel fire

HOUNSFIELD, N.Y. (WWNY) - There was another suspicious fire at an abandoned motel in the town of Hounsfield Wednesday night.

It was the second time this month firefighters were called to the old Harbor Motel on State Route 3.

Officials say there was a small fire in the back of the building.

Jefferson County Fire and Emergency Management director Joe Plummer says the fire is considered suspicious. He says fire officials and state police are investigating.

There was another small fire in the same building three weeks ago. State police said at the time that they were treating it as a possible case of arson.
