MIDDLEFIELD CENTER – A Federal/Greek Revival home – “probably the most historic home in the hamlet,” according to local historian David Petri, Town of Hartwick – caught fire at mid-afternoon yesterday, and a large plume of smoke and flames below the foundation line are still visible this afternoon.

“Flames were leaping out of the roof,” said neighbor Mary Quinn, who lives across the street from 3138 Route 33, owned by Dorothy Newsom since the 1980s.  Only the portico and a tall brick chimney were standing at dusk today.
