Fire Destroys Oneida Homes Early Friday; Elderly Woman Rescued


An elderly woman was rescued Friday morning from a fire that destroyed a half-double in Oneida.

Around 5:00am, Friday, emergency personnel were called to 117 2nd Street in Oneida for a house fire.  The first personnel on scene arrived to find the left side of a half double engulfed in flames.

An elderly woman who lived in the right side of the half double was said to have been rescued by neighbors.  The left half was reported to be under renovation.

The fire hit a second alarm calling in additional help before being brought under control.

No injuries were reported.  The houses were said to be a total loss.

A State Police Fire Marshal has been requested to the scene to investigate a cause.
