Police investigate structure fires from over night.
A barn fire reported on little Canada road in Bethany was called in by the home owner Michael Adams yesterday after the second alarm went off in a metal pole barn.
The town of Batavia fire department, Leroy, pavilion and Stafford helped in the assist to the Alexander fire dept along with the Bethany fire hall.
Thankfully the pole barn contained no equipment and was used to store bedding. The barn was totaled.
Another fire may have destroyed every personal belonging of David and Greg Luetticke-Archbell, who moved to Le Roy in 2008 to purchase Frost Ridge Campground on Conlon Road.
An explosion inside the residence knocked down a firefighter who was outside the building. He wasn't injured in the blast.
The fire fight was defensive and crews did manage to knock the fire down before it did heavy damage to the front of the house.
David and Greg are parents to an 11-year-old boy and two seven-year-old girls.
They also had a family dog, Sadie, who is missing.
In all 12 fire departments responded to the scene
Causes yet to be determined for both fires
