BRUTUS — Firefighters from both Cayuga and Onondaga counties battled a fire at the Kenyon Landing mobile home community in Brutus Wednesday afternoon.
A neighbor reported the fire at 8 Fietta Lane at around 2:30 p.m. Weedsport Fire Department Chief David James said neither of the two occupants were home at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
James said he does not know where in the home the fire started or what caused it, but the home is a total loss. No other homes in the area were damaged, however. It took firefighters about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze, James said, and the cause is still under investigation.
James said the Red Cross has been notified to provide assistance to the two brothers who lived in the home, Wilfred and Larry Hunn. Wilfred was at the scene as firefighters were working. He did not wish to comment.
In addition to Weedsport, Jordan, Port Byron, Sennett and Elbridge fire departments responded to the call.
