The Fredonia Fire Department responded to a fire in progress on Hahn Road in the town of Pomfret at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Reportedly, there were no injuries, as the residents were out of town. However, the structure appeared to be a total loss, with much of the exterior walls burned away. Battling the blaze was made tougher by snow, wind and icy roads. The cause of the fire is reportedly still under investigation. In addition to the Fredonia Fire Department, responders included New York State Police; Sheridan, East Dunkirk and Cassadaga fire departments; and Chautauqua County Emergency Services.
