A major fire in the Wyoming County community of Warsaw.
Flames destroyed a warehouse belonging to Warren’s Carpet Cleaning.
Over a dozen fire companies responded to the blaze yesterday afternoon on Butternut Street in Warsaw.
The building housed trucks and supplies for the well known cleaning business.
Officials believe that a piece of equipment inside one of the trucks may have triggered the blaze.
There were no injuries.
The fire so damaged the steel building that what was left had to be bulldozed.
