Trailer destroyed by fire in Peru


The fire adds another sad event to their recent difficulties, Pam said.

Since January, there have been multiple deaths in the family, she said.

But, somehow, they will find a way to pull through, she said.

“We’re all there for each other,” she said. “We’re a strong family.”

Craig said he still planned on taking online classes that he had registered for previously at Southern New Hampshire University.

“I have my computer,” he said.

He said he hopes to earn a degree in accounting.


Agoney got a call about the fire while he was working at Salerno Plastics.

“It’s not salvageable,” he said.

Agoney said he has insurance on the property and the Rocks have renter’s insurance.

Once the Rocks have removed their personal belongings, the trailer will be torn down, Agoney said.

“They’re excellent tenants,” he said. “I just feel really bad for them.”

Agoney said he was thankful no one was injured.

“It’s just a hard thing.”

Providing mutual aid at the fire site was the Keeseville Volunteer Fire Department and South Plattsburgh Volunteer Fire Department. South Plattsburgh was also standing by at Peru’s station.

The Peru Volunteer Fire Department was back in service at 1:22 p.m.
