Smoke billows from the multi-family home at 141 Emmons Street in Dannemora Tuesday. 

DANNEMORA — A multi-family dwelling at 141 Emmons Street here was lost to fire Tuesday afternoon.

Clinton County Dispatch put out a call for the fire at 2 p.m. with eight area departments responding.

Flames could be seen running along the roof line, and smoke could be seen billowing from the upstairs windows of the multi-family dwelling.

The units were a total loss, Dannemora Fire Chief Byron Wing said.


A portion of Route 374 between Mountain View Drive and Emmons Street was closed during the response.

Wing said there were five units in the building — two upstairs and three downstairs — and it was determined that the fire started in an upstairs bedroom.

All residents escaped the building safely and no injuries were reported, Wing said.
