HANNIBAL — No one was injured Monday morning when a residence in the town of Hannibal was consumed by flames, the latest in a rash of house fires to hit Oswego County in recent weeks.
The Hannibal Fire Department was dispatched to 265 Mill St. at 11:11 a.m., according to officials from the Oswego County E-911 center. The fire tore through the front of the building and up to the metal roof, as clearly seen from the roadway.
Firefighters from Granby, the city of Oswego, Oswego Town, Fair Haven, the New York State Police and the Oswego County Mobile Cascade Unit assisted at the scene, where the cold wind blew the smoke into the shut-down roadway. The fire was knocked down by 11:48 a.m.
A half-dozen fires have struck local homes recently, including two fatal incidents in Mexico and Richland.
The one-family manufactured home is owned by Thomas Simmons, according to Oswego County Real Property records. The total assessment for the property is $35,700.
