Early morning fire claims Smyrna home

SMYRNA – Early this morning, volunteers were awakened to the sound of tones and radio chatter as firefighters from Smyrna, South Otselic and Plymouth were called to respond to a fire in the Town of Smyrna.



Chenango County Fire Coordinator Matthew L. Beckwith said crews responded to a 911 call at approximately 1 a.m. from the neighbor of a couple whose trailer was on fire on County Road 16, near Beaver Meadow.

The home of Austin Dubois was engulfed in flames by the time crews arrived at the scene.

“Unfortunately Dubois and his girlfriend had just moved into the residence a month earlier, and all their possessions were lost,” said Beckwith.
