CLIFTON PARK, NY - On November 21st at 1:19 P.M., the Jonesville FD was dispatched for a reported structure fire at 717 Clifton Park Center Road.

A fire chief from the Northside Fire District notified the dispatcher that he had a large column of smoke showing off in the distance. The first arriving chief on scene notified the dispatcher that he had a working structure fire in a single-story detached garage, with heavy fire in the rear of the building. The first arriving engine on scene pulled a one-and-three-quarter inch hand line down the driveway and made a quick knockdown of the heavy fire condition on the exterior portion of the garage.

Firefighters made their way inside of the garage and knocked down any remaining fire condition. Firefighters began to conduct extensive overhaul on the garage. Saratoga County Fire Investigators quickly arrived on scene. The road in front of the residence was shut down for a short period of time. No injuries were reported and the fire is currently under investigation.
