HENRIETTA, NY - On Saturday, June 25th at 1:51 P.M., the Henrietta Fire District, along with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and CHS Mobile Integrated Healthcare, responded for multiple calls reporting a building fire, with heavy black smoke in the area of Brighton-Henrietta Townline Road.

The incident was eventually located at the Cintas Corporation, where firefighters encountered a blaze in a 30'x40' metal building in the rear of the property. Mutual aid was requested to the scene from the City of Rochester and the Gates Fire District.

Units operated on scene for several hours and required the assistance from heavy equipment to access the interior of the building to complete extinguishment.

Brighton, Chili, Scottsville and Pittsford Fire Departments provided fill-in companies during the incident. There were no injuries reported, and the cause of the fire is believed to have been of accidental origin.
