Fire in Etna

All four Dryden fire departments plus Lansing and Groton were on the scene yesterday morning at a fire which damaged a house on Wood Road. Firefighters had the main fire out within 45 minutes, and spent another hour hunting down hot spots with thermal imaging equipment. The cause of the fire wasn't clear, but a chicken incubator is a suspect, and the probable lack of fire stops between wall studs may have helped the fire spread.

There's a brief note that Brad Jones is stepping out of the race to replace Congressman Sherwood Boehlert, and endorsing fellow Republican Ray Meier. (There's no sign of this yet at Jones' campaign website, but Take Back New York's 24th has a bit of commentary.)
