Livestock Dies in Manlius Building Fire

MANLIUS, N.Y. — A Manlius building fire on Cazenovia Road kept crews busy most of the afternoon on Sunday.
Fire officials say crews got the fire under control quickly, but it had a “large headstart.”
No one was hurt, but livestock in the building didn’t make it.
Officials say the fire may have been started by a heater.
“There was a heat source that was in back of the building,” said Brad Pinsky, Manlius Fire Department Assistant Chief. “The cause is still under investigation, but we’ve located at least the ignition point in the back of the building. We don’t know how long it was burning, but that lid off the back, that quickly grew.”
A few departments responded to the fire including crews from Fayetteville and Cazenovia.
MANLIUS, N.Y. — A litter of puppies was killed late Monday morning after a Manlius kitchen caught fire, firefighters said.
No residents were home at 7948 Broadfield Road when the fire started, Manlius Fire Chief John Buskey said. A passerby reported the fire around 11 a.m. after seeing flames coming from the residence, Buskey said.
When firefighters arrived, smoke was billowing from the building’s eaves, Assistant Chief Brad Pinsky said. Firefighters found between seven to 10 dogs inside, Pinsky said. Most were puppies.
Because the home’s windows were closed, the oxygen-deprived fire didn’t move past the kitchen, Pinsky said. But sweltering temperatures and carbon monoxide proved fatal to most of the dogs.
“It was too hot,” Pinsky said.
Pinsky said firefighters carried each of the dogs out of the house. All of the puppies, including one found hiding under a couch, died. Two adult dogs survived.
“It was definitely disturbing,” Pinsky said.
One of the adult dogs was in bad shape when firefighters carried him outside, Pinsky said. After coaxing the dog to drink water and giving him oxygen, firefighters placed the dog in the chief’s truck and rushed him to a local veterinarian.
No firefighters were injured, Pinsky said.
Although the kitchen was severely burned, Pinsky said the rest of the home sustained little fire or water damage. The house, Pinsky said, was saved.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
MANLIUS, N.Y. — Fire damaged a house early Monday in the town of Manlius and required several fire departments to bring it under control.
About 12:49 a.m. the Manlius Fire Department was called to a house fire at 114 Stonecrest Drive.
When firefighters arrived, flames were consuming the back porch on the house and spreading into the garage and first floor, Manlius Fire Chief John Buskey said.
Rural Metro ambulance as well as firefighters from Fayetteville, Minoa, Kirkville, East Syracuse, Pompey Hill, Cazenovia, Jamesville and Delphi Falls responded to the fire. It took crews about 40 minutes to dowse the fire and bring it under control, Buskey said.
Firefighters kept the fire from spreading and limited damage to the porch, deck, garage and entry way, he said. No injuries were reported. Firefighters left about 7:30 a.m.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the fire appears to be due to embers from an outdoor fire pit, Buskey said.
