Regional News

RAVENA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Crews of firefighters received reports of a structure fire on Main Street in Ravena around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. As of 11:30 p.m., they remain on the scene, and firefighters say it’s been a difficult fire to put out.

“We had a challenge to get the water at one point. The hydrant was pretty far down Main Street, but once we were able to establish a water supply it was easy from there.
