Owego Garage Fire Forces Evacuation of Little League Games
Authorities are investigating the cause of a garage fire that shut down a late little league game in Owego July 1.
Tioga County Emergency Services officials say the blaze at a structure at 171 Talcott Street next to Hyde Park drew firefighters from Owego and Apalachin at around 9:13 p.m. and kept crews on the scene for three and a half hours. Firefighters were able to go back to their stations at around 12:45 a.m. July 2.
One minor injury was reported. Tioga Fire Wire reported the building was fully engulfed when crews arrived on scene and the ballgame at Hyde Park was being evacuated. Fire damage was contained to the garage.
With the little league games happening next door, firefighters had a challenge navigating the big trucks through the crowded streets.
