“I could walk a few steps and look down at the Inaugural Parade,” Casale, who is senior adviser to Ed Cox, chairman of the New York State Republican Committee, said a few minutes ago from Washington D.C. He was among the hosts of today’s event.

Blaze Leaves 11 Laurens Residents Homeless

LAURENS – It took off like a house on fire.
“I got called in at 4:30,” Fire Chief Justin Hill recounted today, the morning after flames ripped through a village home at dusk Thursday afternoon. “I was driving from West Oneonta and I could already see the column of smoke.”
Ten fire departments were called to help battle the blaze that gutted three apartments at 39 Main St., across the street from the fire department.
“The fire started on the second floor in the rear,” said Hill, surveying the smoking ruins. “The layout of the building made it very difficult to attack the fire. We entered through the back door but there was so much fire in the stairs we couldn’t get up them. That’s when we knew we had to go at it from the exterior.”
