ILION – A small fire at 279 W. Main St. in Ilion briefly disrupted traffic on the main street Saturday afternoon, but crisis was averted for the homeowners.
Ilion firefighters reported that embers jumped from a burn barrel, starting a fire up the side of the house. The department responded with two rigs and quickly doused the flames before any real damage was done. Traffic was diverted between Sixth Avenue and West State Street for about 45 minutes to an hour.
