House Fire


The Coon family on Brothertown Road in Waterville lost their house last week after a fire. A neighbor noticed the fire and alerted the person at home, who got out safely. Waterville Fire Department along with Deansboro, Oriskany Falls, Clinton, Clayville and Madison responded, as did COCVAC and Oneida County. They battled high winds and snow in putting out the fire, with wind chill reaching 40 below.
