Third fire in Smithville devastates home

SMITHVILLE – A Smithville family has had three fires on their property in a four day time span, and fire officials said the causes of the fires are still under investigation.

Each fire occurred on the same property at 993 County Road 3 in Smithville with different structures on the property catching fire at different times.

According to Chenango County Bureau of Fire Coordinator Matthew Beckwith, the first fire was reported at approximately 2:10 p.m. on Saturday in the Miller family's garage.

Beckwith said the second fire located in the family's barn was reported around seven hours later.

He said the most recent fire in the family's attic was reported at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and each call was made by the Miller family.

"All I can say is that it's active investigation at this point," said Beckwith. "However it is unusual for three fires to occur on the same property in four days."

One of the victims, Tim Miller, spoke on the recent fires, and said his family didn't cause these fires.
