Geneseo, NY - On Tuesday, July 14th, a house at 13 Ward Pl. suffered extensive damage as a result of a fire that started in the roof and then spread to other parts of the structure. The home was having a new roof installed by contractors at the time the blaze broke out. Geneseo Police were first to arrive on scene and reported heavy smoke showing from the roof. The residence and surrounding exposures were evacuated by officers. Quick action by responding units kept the fire from spreading to two nearby homes located just feet away. Mutual aid was requested to the scene from Livonia, Avon, Lakeville and Mt. Morris Fire Departments, along with Livingston County EMS. There were no injuries reported. The cause of the blaze was under investigation by Livingston County Emergency Management.
