A fire broke out around 9 p.m. at Cedarwood Apartments off of Idlewood Boulevard in Baldwinsville on July 19.
The fire began in a basement utility room and left three people injured. Mary Frances Sabin, councilor on the Van Buren town board, commended the fire departments for their rapid response.
"Thanks to the men and women who led such a coordinated effort Monday night," Sabin said at Van Buren's last meeting. Baldwinsville, Belgium Cold Springs, Warners, Liverpool, and Lakeside fire departments all responded, as did the Greater Baldwinsville Ambulance Corp. and the Red Cross.
