A fire in Ovid’s downtown district is burning in the central business block and several businesses are reportedly involved. Fire crews from Seneca County, Trumansburg and Enfield are on the scene of the blaze which appears to have started in the vicinity of the New Dragon Chinese Restaurant.
Tankers are coming in from Cayuga and Ontario County. Radio reports monitored indicate 29 tankers are either on the scene or enroute and there are lines to fill the tankers on site with water.
The two story building also houses Italian Kitchen Pizza, an assessor’s office and the Community Thrift Shop. Reports indicate all occupants of the building got out without injury.
We will report information as it becomes available.
