Pompey (WSYR-TV) - Smoke could be seen for miles around the Pompey Club on Hamilton Road on Saturday.
Several fire departments were called to the grounds after a fire started in the club's maintenance garage. Pesticides, fertilizers, even small propane tanks were kept inside, forcing firefighters to stay back and keep the water flowing. But, getting water to the scene was another challenge.
"It's quite a coordinated effort because of the fact that we don't have hydrants up here. We're using portable ponds. We have crews that are down on the Palladino pond drafting water, bringing it in on tankers, then the trucks are drafting that to the scene where we are applying the water," explained Onondaga County Department of Emergency Management Commissioner Kevin Wisely.
No one was hurt at the scene. Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.
