PHOTO UPDATE: Fire Takes Historic Home in 300 Block of South First Street

Downtown traffic was snarled as area departments reported to a house fire in Geneva's Historic District.

Multiple fire departments, emergency personnel and police reported to a house fire around 2:20 p.m. Friday, July 20, in the 300 block of South First Street in Geneva.

The interior of a home in Geneva's Historic District appeared to have been badly burned. Windows were broken and firefighters rested under a shade tree at around 2:40 p.m. after battling the fire and smoke.

First Street (Route 31), Second Street, Franklin Street and other side streets were blocked by police and fire vehicles. A Tri-Com scanner report said the fire was officially out by 2:52 p.m. Friday, but that was unconfirmed at the time of this article.

Geneva Patch will follow up when information is made available by official sources.
