Two Killed in Cayuga County House Fire


Two people lost their lives in a Cayuga County house fire Tuesday morning.

State Police say a neighbor spotted smoke coming from the Drake Road home in Conquest at around six o’clock and knocked on the door of the residence to alert the people inside. After getting no response, the neighbor called 9-1-1. Firefighters located the bodies of a 56-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman in the rear bedroom of the home. One of three dogs also perished in the fire. The remaining two were taken to a local veterinarian.

The Cayuga County Fire and State Fire are continuing to investigate the cause with the preliminary investigation determining the fire to be electrical in nature.
