     On Friday, July 15th at approximately 3:02 pm, the Fairview Fire District was dispatched for a reported fire in a residential structure on West Dorsey Lane in the Town of Hyde Park. Upon arrival, firefighters found the first floor and the rear of the structure located at 80 West Dorsey Lane involved in fire. A structure in the rear and a vehicle were in danger of catching fire. Additional mutual aid resources were requested to the scene with a request of a second alarm. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the original building with the fire being declared under control within an hour of arrival. A dog was rescued from the fire building by firefighters.

The structure suffered extensive damage and will not be habitable in the near future.
