— A Ticonderoga residence and garage were destroyed by a stubborn fire Jan. 19.

A fire at the home of John Scuderi at 4 The Portage was reported shortly after 1 p.m. Firefighters from six departments responded and stayed on scene more than six hours as strong winds hampered their efforts.

The home’s residents escaped without incident.

Fire companies from Ticonderoga, Chilson, Hague, Putnam, Crown Point and Port Henry answered the call.

The Ticonderoga Emergency Squad was also at the scene and was needed to assist three injured firefighters. All three were treated at Moses Ludington Hospital and released.

A water main break complicated the effort and required the town water department to respond and fix the pipe while firefighters fought the blaze.

The house is located near the intersection of The Portage, Water Street and Black Point Road. All three roads were closed for hours



   The objective of the Ticonderoga Volunteer Fire Company #1, Inc. shall be the preservation and protection of life and property from and during such fires and emergencies as may occur in the Ticonderoga Fire District and other Districts wherein the company is called for assistance under mutual aid.
