CHARLOTTE – An electrical issue is blamed for a residential fire at the Town of Charlotte trailer early Thursday.
Over a half-a-dozen departments assisted firefighters from Sinclairville to battle the Rood Road blaze around 5 a.m.
After flames were extinguished, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office fire investigation team responded to determine the cause and origin.
It has been determined that the fire originated at floor level behind a dryer due to a compromised electrical cord and outlet.
The residence has since been deemed a complete loss. The resident and her dog are being assisted by the Red Cross.
