Morning Fire


The Oriskany Falls Fire Department, with mutual aid from Waterville, Vernon Center, Deansboro and Madison, responded to a house fire last Thursday on Sanger Hill Road. Resident Lee Edwards escaped unharmed, but his dog Missy perished in the fire that destroyed his home. Edwards, a member of the Oriskany Falls department and Kelley-Phillips American Legion, is also known as the driver of the tractor that pulls Santa Claus in the Shoppers’ Stroll parade every year in Clinton. Donations can be dropped off at the Legion or Skeele Insurance Agency in Waterville.
