Shed Destroyed by Fire at Seneca Foods
On May 3, 2013 at 11:11am, the North Side & Oaks Corners Fire Departments were dispatched to Seneca
Foods at 346 Gambee Road in the Town of Geneva for a third-party report of a storage building on fire at the
rear of the complex. Oaks Corners Chief Brian Maney called enroute at 11:13. Geneva FD Chief Mike Combs
responded to the scene and reported that a shed was fully involved and already on the ground.

North Side Asst. Chief Todd Powers and Pumper/Tanker 1931 called enroute at 11:15 and arrived on scene at
11:17. The fire was on a small dirt road approximately 1,800 feet off of the parking lot. Firefighters stretched a
1 3/4" attack line and attacked the fire. Oaks Corners Engine 3211 arrived at 11:21 and supplied
Pumper/Tanker 1931 with a 4" supply line. Oaks Corners Firefighters backed up a North Side Firefighter on the
attack line and assigned manpower to overhaul. Oaks Corners Pumper/Tanker 3231 responded and stood by
in the parking lot with additional water. An additional crew stood by at the Oaks Corners station with a brush
truck and rescue. The fire was declared under control at 11:24. The fire was caused by a squirrel who caused
an electrical arc which started a brush fire. The brush fire spread to the building. Ontario County Deputy Fire
Coordinator Eric Hansen also assisted on scene.
