IFD able to make quick work of South Hill fire

April 14, 2015 by Rachel Cera

Just as crews had gotten the fire at Collegetown's Chapter House pub and a neighboring apartment house under control, Ithaca Fire Department was called to the scene of a fire on South Aurora Street.

Photo courtesy IFD.IFD tells us their firefighters were helped by Enfield and Dryden firefighters as they extinguished the south hill fire, which was near Hillview Place. They believe crews digging in the area hit an electrical line, which may have caused this fire.

Lt. Thomas T. Basher Jr. tells us that fire department personnel are still cleaning up at the scene on South Aurora Street, and he hopes the road will be reopened to traffic by about noon.
