WWNY Fire destroys garage in town of Pierrepont

TOWN OF PIERREPONT, N.Y. (WWNY) - A fast-moving fire destroyed a garage in the town of Pierrepont Monday, but surrounding buildings including a home were spared.

Volunteer firefighters from Pierrepont, Colton and Canton responded to the scene at 53 Allen Road.

Tankers transported water down the long wooded drive.

Firefighters quickly brought the fire under control but it took time to douse all hotspots. There were no injuries.

“The structure was already down on the ground by the time we got here,” said Peter Hoyt, Pierrepont fire chief. “It was really just saving the surrounding structures and making sure everybody was safe.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
