Written By Editor on 10/11/16 | 10/11/16

On Sunday, October 9th, 2016 at about 10:12 pm, the Cobleskill Police Department received a report of a structure fire at 695 East Main Street in the Village of Cobleskill. CPD Patrol units immediately responded and observed smoke coming from the building. Sgt. Harold Wilday entered the structure, a multi-unit apartment building, and was able to evacuate all of the tenants that were still inside of the building, as well as a cat belonging to one of the tenants. All tenants were evacuated safely without injury.

The Cobleskill Fire Department arrived on scene and, with assistance from the Richmondville Fire Department and County FAST team, was able to extinguish the fire.

The New York State Police and Schoharie County Sheriffs Office responded to the scene and assisted with traffic control.

The cause of the fire was investigated by the Schoharie County FIVES team and determined to be of accidental origin.

At this time, the building is uninhabitable, and the former occupants are being assisted by the Red Cross.
