Anyone know what the fines are for burning tires, especially with the burn ban in effect?
Structure fire on Ellicott Street Road, Pavilion
Submitted by Billie Owens on April 10, 2012 - 12:31pm
Heavy black smoke is spewing from a vacant structure at 6553 Ellicott St. Road in Pavilion. They are not sure whether it's coming from the first or second story. Pavilion Fire Department is responding and so is Le Roy's.
UPDATE 12:34 p.m.: A responder on scene reports this is a "controlled burn" -- a rubbish fire, which includes tires, and it's behind the house. The second-alarm responders are told to stand by in quarters-- they include Alexander, Bethany, Stafford and the City of Batavia's Fast Team.
UPDATE 12:37 p.m.: They anticipate being able to "knock this out quickly."
UPDATE 12:43 p.m.: Bethany's tanker is en route, non-emergency mode. Stafford is cancelled. (We presume the city and Alexander are also standing down.) They are going to shut the road to traffic.
UPDATE 12:45 p.m.: "We've got it pretty well knocked down for the most part."
UPDATE 12:54 p.m.: The fire is out.
UPDATE 12:57 p.m.: Le Roy is returning to service.
UPDATE 1:12 p.m.: The road is reopened.
UPDATE 1:16 p.m.: Bethany and Pavilion are back in service. A representative of the Department of Environmental Conservation responded to the scene to investigate and is now leaving.
