No injuries reported in Cornell Main Street fire
By Julia Wolf
The Cornell Area Fire Department responded in force, when the department received a call of a fire at 609 Main Street, Jan. 22.
Cornell Fire Chief Dennis Klass says the fire started in the attic. He says he is not sure what caused the fire, but thinks electric wiring is a likely cause.
“It was an old house, so I would imagine some of the wiring up there was not in the best of shape,” said Klass. “It spread quickly through the attic, but we made a pretty good stop on it, quick stop.”
