Wellsville Fire Department media release
On July 30, 2020 at approximately 2:48 a.m., the Wellsville Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at 110 Pine Street in the Village of Wellsville. While fire units were responding, Wellsville PD gave an updated on-scene report of a working structure fire with all occupants out of the structure. Wellsville Fire requested a mutual aid engine from Scio to standby at WFD headquarters. Andover's air truck and Alfred Station's District 4 FAST team were automatically included in the initial dispatch to the scene. Scio, Andover and Willing provided additional support on-scene for fire suppression, standby, and overhaul. The structure was significantly involved in heavy fire conditions upon arrival. The homeowner's insurance company was contacted for an estimate of damages. WPD and Allegany County Fire Investigation Team are investigating the cause of the fire and the property is being considered a significant loss. WFD would like to thank all of our mutual aid departments, WPD, Allegany County Fire Coordinators & Fire Investigation Team, our wonderful WFD Auxiliary and the members of our community for their continued support.
WFD Chiefs and members.
UPDATE: The Wellsville Fire Chief could not confirm if the blaze was suspicious, as he could not say if the Sunday garage fire on Pine Street was suspicious. Sources close to both fires have indicated they are being actively investigated. As always, in any situation, the neighborhood should remain vigilant.
