Tuesday fire claims Columbus flower shop

COLUMBUS – Tuesday night, a wood stove fire destroyed the Sweet’s Station Florist shop.

Chenango County Fire Coordinator Matthew L. Beckwith said the business caught fire at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, originating from a deteriorating stove pipe.



Fire departments from three different counties – Chenango, Madison and Otsego – responded to the blaze at 6332 State Route 8 in the hamlet of West Edmeston, closing the road for about four and a half hours.

The two-story house used to be the owner’s residence and still had upstairs bedrooms, explained Beckwith. No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
