Firefighters Called To Christian Hill,

Where Wood Bull Loses Stored Antiques

Cooperstown firefighter Henry Stewart, top left, and Fire Captain Chris Satriano watch for flare-ups after a fast-moving fire leveled Kip Coburn’s barn this evening at 324 Williams Road on Christian Hill, Town of Otsego.   Coburn operates Wood Bull Antiques on Route 28, Milford, and said today the barn was used to store overflow antiques from that operation; all were lost.  Coburn’s son said the only animals in the barn were chickens, and they escaped to safety.  Inset, Cooperstown’s second assistant chief, Kevin Preston, moves debris to allow the flames to burn out.  Firefighters responded from Fly Creek, Hartwick, Hartwick Seminary, Schuyler Lake and Richfield Springs, as well as Cooperstown.  “They toned us all,” said Cooperstown firefighter Frank Capozza.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

    Regarding the fire on Christian Hill, I believe that credit should be awarded where credit is due. The Fly Creek Volunteer Fire Company was in charge and all other departments responded. That fact was not mentioned in your article.
    These volunteers risk life and limb to help the residents of our communities and should be duly recognized accordingly.
