A gas dryer is reportedly on fire at 1325 Broadway, Darien Center.

There is no structure fire at this time.

Darien Fire and Alexander Fire have been dispatched.

UPDATE 4:42 p.m.: It is now a structure fire. Corfu is also responding. Flames reported on the outside of the building.

UPDATE 4:48 p.m.: Broadway and Route 77 are being shut down. Batavia's Fast team is being dispatched.

UPDATE 6:18 p.m.: Firefighters continue to battle hotspots inside the house. The amount of smoking billowing from out of the attic has subsided substantially, but there's clearly still fire burning in the interior. In addition to Darien, Corfu and Alexander, companies from Alexander, Alden and Bennington are on scene. Route 5 remains closed, though 77 is open.

UPDATE 8:39 p.m.: All units back in service.

UPDATE: More pictures after the jump.

Joe, That is refering to music (drum) note. It's been a LONG time since I played drums in school but I do remember that.

Joe as well as myself were probably wondering the relevance of a drum note definition on a story relating to a fire.

Cute comments... However, you all forgot to recognize and praise all of the volunteer firefighters who responded to this emergency. Each and every one of these people take time out of their personal lives to help people in our communities in times of need. Take a few minutes to look at these pictures and let it sink in that not one person is paid for what they have done. Thank you Howard for such great coverage.

This is the house of one of my players family. Everyone is ok (as far as I know) but I believe they lost pretty much everything.

Mike, Yes, thank you for clarifying. Mr. Tost, Cute Comments? Those "Cute Comments" came long before Howard posted the pics and the outcome of the fire. Do not question MY recognition and praise for the Volunteer firefighters and what they do. I spent several years as a highly active volunteer firefighter.
