Fuel Added to Flame Destroys Upstate New York Building

No fewer than 15 fire companies answered the call in upstate New York to fight a building fire. They were facing a difficult challenge. The building housed a company, Excelsior Alternative Energy, that produces fuel to start fires.

A firefighter described the scene as a “perfect storm” to WNYT NBC Albany. There was no water source. And, the building housed sawdust which was used to create bricks to help light fireplaces and stoves.
