Half a dozen firefighters battled a fast-moving fire that broke out at a home in the town of Dickinson.
Authorities said the two-alarm fire at 40 Sunset Drive was reported shortly after 2:30 p.m. Friday.
Thick black smoke billowing from the blaze was aimed at drivers passing on Route 17, just south of the scene of the fire. Flames were shooting from the brick structure when the first firefighters arrived on the scene.
According to Broome County emergency dispatchers, there were no immediate reports of injuries. A dog was rescued from the burning single family home.
Prospect Terrace firefighters were assisted by units from Choconut Center, Port Dickinson, Endicott, East Maine and Johnson City.
An ambulance from the Broome Volunteer Emergency Squad was at the scene. Investigators from the Broome County Office of Emergency Services also responded to the fire.
Officials believe the fire started on a back porch of the house, but the cause was not immediately known.
WATCH: What 25 historic battlefields look like today
What follows is an examination of what happened to the sites where America fought its most important and often brutal war campaigns. Using a variety of sources, Stacker selected 25 historically significant battlefields in American history. For each, Stacker investigated what happened there when the battles raged as well as what happened to those sacred lands when the fighting ceased.
To find the best beer in every state and Washington DC, Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that collates user scores for beer in real time. BeerAdvocate makes its decisions by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington DC and applying a weighted ranking to each. The weighted ranking pulls the beer towards the middle of the list based on the number of ratings it has and is intended to allow lesser-known beers to increase their ranking. Only beers with at least 10 ratings should be considered; we’ve gone a step further by only including beers with at least 100 user ratings in our gallery.
