Syracuse fire badly damages Tipperary Hill house, forces 2 from home

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A fire caused heavy damage to a house on Tipperary Hill early Thursday and damaged an adjacent structure, the Syracuse Fire Department said.

At 1:36 a.m. firefighters responded to a fire in a 1 1/2 story single-family wood-frame house at 107 Avery Ave., between Ulster and Tompkins streets.

The fire began on an enclosed porch on the first floor, Lt. Joe Galloway, a city fire investigator, said. Firefighters had the blaze knocked down in about 20 minutes, though they had to work around some live wires that fell into the front yard.

Two people escaped the house unharmed. The American Red Cross said it was helping them. Crews remained at the scene dealing with hot spots until 6 a.m.

The house suffered heavy damage, Galloway said. The house at 105 Avery Ave. also suffered heat damage and broken windows. Two private vehicles were damaged too, one by heat and the other by heat and fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but Galloway said it is being investigated as an accidental fire.

Property records list the owner of 107 Avery Ave. as Christopher Davis.
