The McLean Fire Department (of Tompkins County) dispatched to a structure fire on Sweetland Road off of Rt. 13 in the town of Cortlandville earlier this week.

Arriving at the scene at 7:35 p.m. On Monday, the department found a garage fully engulfed in flames, with heat transferring to a nearby house and shed. Firefighters were able to save the house and shed from additional fire damage, and extinguish the garage fire in the process.
