PALMYRA, N.Y. -- Eight fire companies were rotating their crews due to the heat during a fire that spread from a garage in East Palmyra Saturday afternoon.
Palmyra firefighters say the fire spread to a tractor trailer, a boat and the family vehicle on Tellier Road. The wind pushed the flames toward the home, melting part of the siding.
Fire officials say no one was home at the time and that a neighbor was able to get a dog out of the home.
"The large response was due to the weather," said Palmyra Fire Department Assistant Chief Bob Delvin. "The heat, I mean the heat wears on us very quickly. We're all wearing 30 to 40 pounds of extra gear right from the get go."
It took more than two hours to get the fire under control. No one was injured.
