Mayfield NY-Triple fatal-Careless smoking
In Fulton County, upstate NY, the Mayfield FD responded around 11AM on Thursday, 11/09 to a structure fire.
Careless smoking by a young female led to her death, her 2 year old son, and a female cousin.
Chief reported the smoke had completely filled the structure down to the floor when first units arrived. A neighbor/good citizen attempted entry but was impeded by locked door. His rescue attempts were unsuccessful.
Mutual aid given by Broadalbin, Gloversville, Berkshire, and Pleasant Square.
