Fire destroys Seneca Co. buildings
Ovid, N.Y. -- Fire destroyed four buildings in a Seneca County community Tuesday night.
Firefighters found heavy black smoke coming from the back of the buildings on Main Street in Ovid just before 6 p.m.
Ovid's fire chief said as many as 25 fire departments helped battle flames.
All of the buildings damaged in the fire will have to be demolished, according to Ovid's fire chief.
Blanche Belliveau, who lives in a nearby apartment, said she was alerted to a problem after a noise that sounded like an explosion.
"We heard a noise, and then a big pop, and then I ran out of the building," she said.
Belliveau said she first spotted flames in a restaurant inside the building.
No injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
