Firefighters Battle Fire at 130-Year-Old NY Building

Fire destroyed a 130-year-old building that housed municipal offices in the rural community of Castile in western New York State.

Citing local media reports, the Associated Press (http://on.wsj.com/SY1SHY) said the fire broke out early Tuesday morning inside a two-story building on Main Street in the Wyoming County village, which is located 45 miles southeast of Buffalo.

About 20 fire companies spent several hours battling the blaze. Firefighters had to use water pumped from tankers because the village’s hydrant system is being worked on.

The building was a total loss.
