A melee on Holland Avenue on Friday evening involved multiple underage youths and a BB gun, and when police arrived, two adults got involved, and then, there was a kitchen fire.
The result: Two adults and one juvenile arrested, at least one person taken to a hospital, and a ruined dinner.

Anderson was charged with disorderly conduct.
Batavia PD, along with troopers and deputies, responded to a report of multiple individuals involved in a fight with at least one weapon involved at 4:37 p.m.

A witness said the fight started on Holland Avenue, with several youths taking off their shirts and engaging each other in a physical fight.
One youth reportedly shot another youth with a BB gun.
The person shot was a juvenile and his name has not been released.
Police said there was one injury as a result of the shots, but did not specify who was shot. The victim was treated and released at UMMC.
As police were attempting to sort out the incident, a kitchen fire broke out at 23 Holland Ave. and a woman came out of the house complaining that with all the commotion, she wasn't able to pay attention to cooking dinner.

The fire seems to have started with a pot on the stove and spread to the wall behind a microwave.
Tomlin was ordered held without bail.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and they don't anticipate releasing more information until the coming week.
