Hundreds of people crowded downtown Palmyra as multiple fire departments responded to a house fire on East Main Street, Palmyra.
Hundreds of people crowded downtown Palmyra as multiple fire departments responded to a building fire on East Main Street, Palmyra.
The fire appears to have started on the third floor, according to Joanne Lee, owner of Goldy's Goodies, a thrift shop on the first floor of the building.
Wayne County 911 tells newspartner News10NBC that one person was pulled from the building. The extent of their injuries was unknown.
Lee said that at one point, all firefighters were pulled out of the building because it was deemed not safe.
The building houses multiple businesses, including Goldy's and Mark's Pizzeria.
High winds have been creating a problem for firefighters, making it hard for them to see, and for them to get back inside the building.
Lee said she thinks the windows blew out above her when she was inside her store.
"I was in there and I heard a big crash," she said.
Lee said she's not sure when she'll be able to reopen. She does not have insurance.
"My whole life is in there," she said.
Palmyra, East Palmyra, Macedon, Port Gibson, Marion and Williamson fire departments are responding, in addition to fire companies from Ontario County. Traffic has been diverted off East Main Street.
