BATAVIA/McKinley Avenue fire started in a downstairs bedroom, total of 7 residents displaced
On Sunday February 18th, 2024, the City of Batavia Fire Department responded to a reported house fire at 14 McKinley Avenue in the City of Batavia. Initial fire units arrived on-scene four minutes after the initial dispatch, reporting heavy fire from the front door of the residence and requested a second alarm. Crews stretched a hose line and made entry into the building for fire attack and searched for any occupants as other crews were securing a water source on McKinley. Crews quickly reported that the initial fire hydrant was inoperable and immediately began to look for another one in the area. While this water disruption was only for a brief amount of time, the high winds caused the fire to grow extremely fast resulting in the order to evacuate fire crews from the building and fight the fire defensively.
