PHOTO: Six fire departments, with many others on standby, came together early Sunday morning to battle a blaze at the Royal Mountain Inn, located at 4993 State Highway 29 in Johnstown. Crews were first sent to the scene around 12:14 a.m. and were told that a man was trapped on the roof of the burning building. When first responders arrived, they were told a Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Deputy and St. Johnsville Ambulance had helped the man off the roof. No one else was found inside the building. Through a coordinated effort, the blaze was extinguished before the structure could be reduced to rubble. Extensive damages can be seen in photos posted to Facebook. “The Royal Mountain Inn has been a landmark in the community for years,” said Chief Souza of the Rockwood-Garoga-Lassellsville Volunteer Fire Company.
