3 buildings destroyed in Chazy fire

Posted: Updated:

More evidence Friday of the growing danger of runaway brush fires.

The dry, warm spring weather has created tinder box conditions and just a spark can lead to devastating results. That's what happened in Chazy, N.Y. Firefighters believe a grass fire spread to a nearby farm, destroying an unoccupied house-barn combination and two other barns.

"We originally got called for a wild land-type fire. Numerous calls came in, a reported possible structure fire. When we arrived on scene, we had a fully involved structure," Chazy Fire Chief Mike Cahoon said.

Seven departments helped battle the blazed, but all of the structures burned to the ground and about 1 acre of land also burned.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
