Former Stone Building fire ruled arson
Honeoye, N.Y. - Investigators say a large fire at a century-old building on Main Street in Honeoye was intentionally set.
The former Stone Construction building was destroyed in the fire early in the morning on August 22nd.
Firefighters from more than a dozen fire departments battled the blaze before bringing it under control.
At the time of the fire Chief McGory told 13WHAM, "At three and a half stories and flames through the roof and all visible windows on the front of the building, there wasn't any going inside the building."
So they fought it from the outside- About 100 fire fighters - all of them volunteers.
And then were well organized. For hours they ran a relay of trucks back and forth from Honeoye and Canandaigua Lakes to bring in extra water.
It was the end to a building that has a lot of history.
The front part of the building was built in 1913 and was originally Honeoye High School.
Stone Construction owned it for years, then Commodore Plastics took it over about a year ago.
A company out of Syracuse called Kral was doing asbestos abatement for Commodore.
Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call the Ontario County Sheriff's Department.
