Fire officials say an unsupervised burn pile spread to multiple buildings and brushy areas in a remote area Friday. The fires were reported about 1:30 p.m. at 3 North Addition Rd., between Route 78 and Java Lake Road.
The property, owned by David Watkins, could be accessed only from a single-lane road, Wyoming County Office of Emergency Services Fire/EMS Coordinator William Streicher said.
North Java, Strykersville, Arcade, Sheldon, Harris Corners, Wales Center, Chaffee/Sardinia, Monroe Ambulance and an inmatge [sic] crew from Wyoming Correctional were called to the scene.
Fire crews spent nearly five hours at the scene, battling fires at multiple buildings, a log cabin and several brush fires. No injuries were reported.
The fires happened one day before the state burn ban was lifted. There was no word on whether the owner of the property will be cited.
