This past Saturday, Sept. 23, a large fire destroyed the structure formerly known as the Munnsville Hotel. The fire also caused extensive damage to the structure that housed the Madison County Sheriff’s Office Field Office, immediately adjacent to the hotel.
Due to the damage sustained by the fire, the field office will no longer be in operation, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. The Madison County Sheriff’s Office will still maintain its same level of coverage providing the community with 24/7 police services.
If you need to report an emergency call 911. For non-emergencies you can call 315-366-2311. You may also visit the Law Enforcement Building in Wampsville or one of the other Sheriff’s field offices, located in Earlville (at the village hall), DeRuyter (at the Town hall) or Morrisville (behind the village offices).
The investigation is continuing this morning by both criminal and arson investigators, according to the sheriff’s office.
