LINDLEY, N.Y. (WETM) – Numerous fire crews responded to a large house fire in the Town of Lindley Wednesday afternoon.
Calls for the fully involved structure fire on Welty Road first went out around 4:00 p.m. on April 27. At least ten agencies responded, including Lindley-Presho, Tuscarora, Tioga, Forest View-Gang Mills, Lawrenceville, Nelson, Elkland, Caton Volunteer, EMR ambulance, Nelson Ambulance and Steuben County Emergency Services.
A reporter on the scene said smoke was visible above the treeline. However, the fire was reportedly at a structure set far back from the road. A firefighter with Caton Volunteer told 18 News that it was reportedly a tall one-story building larger than a ranch-style house. The first responder also said he believed everyone made it out of the house without injury.
By 5:45 p.m., crews were reportedly clearing the scene.
There is currently no more word on any injuries or the cause of the fire. 18 News has reached out to the Lindley-Presho Fire Department and Steuben County Public Safety and is waiting for more information.
Details are extremely limited at this time. 18 News will continue to follow this story and provide more information as it becomes available.
