Popular Chazy eatery destroyed by fire
CHAZY, N.Y. (WCAX) - A popular Clinton County, New York, restaurant was destroyed by fire over the weekend.
Crews from several departments responded to the Weathercock Restaurant and Bar in Chazy Saturday afternoon to put out the blaze.
Chazy Fire Chief Dennis Pilon says the likely fire started in the walls and then spread throughout the building. He says it appears to be accidental.
Local businesses provided the firefighters shelter from the freezing temperatures.
“One of the previous owner’s sons was in the fire department and helped fight the fire. So, it has lots of ties. The fire department has had banquets there. Communities have gone there after funerals. It’s been a well-established business for many years,” Chief Pilon said.
The structure has been called a total loss. A decision to rebuild the restaurant is being discussed.
