Firefighters say 60 year old Mary Gutreuter, and her dog, are dead after a fire in Port Henry, NY that started late Saturday night. Officials say multiple departments battled the Main Street structure fire early into Sunday morning. It happened at 4326 Main Street, better known as “The Aubochon Block”. Port Henry Fire Chief, James Hughes, says the cause of the fire is still being investigated. Hughes says most of the damage is in one apartment on the building’s second-floor, the same floor Gutreuter lived on. He also says the fire burned through the ceiling, into a third floor apartment. Others who lived in the building are safe.
