Hartford House Fire

An elderly Geneva County man is without a roof over his head following a weekend blaze which destroyed his Hartford home.

Ervin Pouncey says he was running errands when he received a call that his Sixth Avenue home was engulfed in flames.

Officials believe a space heater started the fire. Fortunately, no one was injured.

The 70-year-old victim says it's terrible to see all your possessions go up in smoke.

Pouncey is living with his sister. He hopes to clear the rubble and put a mobile home at the same location.
