GAINES – A fire broke out in a Gaines home on Route 104 just after noon today.
Firefighters were dispatched to a house owned by Timothy Ausman at 14713 Ridge Rd. Ausman didn’t live in the house. He rented it out. The house is on the north side of the road, just east of the Cobblestone Museum.
Several fire departments responded to the scene and had to fight temperatures in the teens and snow.

Darryl Szklany of the Albion Fire Department was among the firefighters who responded to the fire.
Fire investigators are at the scene. No additional information is available.
