An autopsy scheduled for today in Rochester is expected to prove the body found in the burned out remains of the Castile Municipal Building is that of 52-year-old Lorraine Qutermous.
She lived in an apartment on the second floor of 55 Main Street.
She owned and operated Lorraine’s Place Restaurant on the first floor.
Fire swept the 140 year-old building early Tuesday.
The Town and Village of Castile had their offices there.
Municipal records dating back to the 19th century were destroyed in the blaze and damage is expected to reach into the millions of dollars.
The Bank of Castile provided some office space and telephones so the government could function after the fire.
Other offices are now operating in the fire hall next door, which was not damaged in the blaze.
Back in Genesee County, authorities are still trying to pin down the cause of a barn fire in Darien.
That blaze destroyed the building and its contents early yesterday on the Daniel Oles property.
Bankrupt Eastman Kodak is going through cash at a rapid rate. The monthly operating report shows Rochester's largest employer ended August with some 92-million dollars less that is had on hand one month earlier. Kodak ended August with just under 345-million dollars available. The monthly reports indicate Kodak is having a tough time turning itself around.
The city of Rochester didn't get much snow last year.
But that may not be the case in the coming months.
Accu-Weather is predicting the Northeast will see more snow than last year.
Rochester's snowiest winter was back in 1959-60 when nearly 162 inches fell on the city.
