Despite the heavy volume of fire on arrival, it was declared under control 52 minutes from the time of dispatch.

Family of six left homeless after fire destroys their home The Bath Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched at 3:20 p.m. on Saturday November 21, 2015 to the home of Scott and Jennifer Orlowske at 4 Mountview Road East in the Village of Bath for a possible structure fire. 1st Assistant Chief Robin Havens was on seen within three minutes and reported a working structure fire and requested a second alarm, which called for the Bath VA fire, Hammondsport, Kanona, Savona and Pultney Fire Departments as well as Bath Volunteer Ambulance. Also requested were the Steuben County Fire Investigation

JUMP TO FILE #112215105 Team and Bath Gas and Electric utilities to disconnect the power to the home. Smoke was coming from the building with heavy fire seen inside the window, which broke out shortly after arrival and gave oxygen to the fire. The home and contents were completely destroyed. The Orlowske children were home with their grandmother at the time the fire broke out and she got everyone out of the home safely and took them to a neigh-

bor’s home across the street. The American Red Cross was called to assist the family of two adults and four children. The fire was declared under control at 4:12 p.m., but units remained on scene to completely extinguish any smoldering fires and to help with the investigation. Bath units were back in service at 6:24 p.m. The fire is not suspicious in nature; however, it is still under investigation by the Steuben County Fire Investigation Team. - JOHN CONRAD
