One victim was hospitalized for fire-related injuries

At just after midnight this morning The Bath Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched for a report of a structure fire at 6754 County Route 10 in the Town of Bath. The tenant of the apartment had escaped and gone to a neighbor to report his apartment was on fire and had seen flames and a lot of smoke. The neighbor then reported the fire to 911.

1st Assistant Chief Mike Fiordo was the first to arrive on scene to observe a steady stream of smoke coming from a fist floor garage window. He then called for mutual aid from the Bath VA Fire Department to the scene and Hammondsport Fire was called to standby at the Bath VA station. Assistant chiefs David Dowdle and Corey Zydanowicz arrived next looking for the fire and found a lot of heat coming from the lower floor. The interior attack crews were able to make access and found the fire and were quickly able to put it out before it extended into the second floor of the apartment.

The tenant was treated by the Bath Volunteer Ambulance Corps and then transported by them and AMR Advanced Life Support of Corning to Robert Packard Hospital in Sayre, PA for injuries he had sustained. His condition is unknown at this time.

The Steuben County Fire Investigation Team was called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire which has not been yet been declared. All units were cleared at 02:55am.
