Fire burns multiple apartment units in Macedon
MACEDON, N.Y. (WHEC) — A large fire in Macedon overnight on Thursday left many apartments destroyed. It’s the second time in less than a year the same complex went up in flames.
The fire broke out at the apartments off of West Street, next to Pal-Mac Intermediate School.
12 tenants have to find another place to stay after the fire burned through at least 8 different units. Here’s what one woman told us at the scene.
“We were sitting in our apartment, smoke alarm went off and came outside and the whole upstairs was engulfed in flames,” said apartment resident Amanda Hall. “I moved here right after the first fire. I moved over into this building. I really don’t even know, I just started, I had to start all over again and now I have to do it all over.”
There were no reports of any serious injuries. Next door to the scene of another huge fire at a different building in the apartment complex last December, oxygen tanks were exploding when crews showed up to that call.
