Is there a fire on Main Street?
A reader sent an e-mail and said she heard an Main Street business in Batavia is on fire and Main Street is shut down.
I tried calling the dispatch center and the conversation went like this:
"I'm Howard Owens with The Batavian."
"I'm sorry, sir, we're really busy."
"I hear there is a fire on Main Street."
"I'm sorry, sir, we don't have time to talk."
I spoke to somebody at T.F. Brown's who said he heard something about a fire but didn't really know.
If you know anything, please fill us in.
Brian Hillabush is on his way to the scene, but won't be there for 40 minutes or so (he was out of town, too).
UPDATE: Dan Jones went to the scene and confirmed there were fire trucks on the scene. The business that we had been tipped to was Main St. Pizza Company. I just called Main St. Pizza and it turned out to be a real minor fire. It was extinquished quickly and no real damage was done.
