Fire destroys Callicoon house
No one was hurt in a fire that took down a house Tuesday night.
Fire departments from Hortonville, Callicoon, Equinunk, North Branch, Lava and Fremont were at the scene on State Route 97, as the call went out for tankers and pumps. The house was across from the former Delaware Valley Central school, where smoke and flames were rising high at roughly 8:15 p.m. By 9:30 p.m., fire fighters had the flames under control, but it seemed unlikely that any part of the house would remain standing.
A firefighter on the scene, who plows the driveway for the house, said he did not think the owner was home or in town at the time of the fire.
