CARLTON – Carlton firefighter Ben Diltz tries to break up some of the wreckage from a fire this morning at a garage owned by William Wells at 13324 Hanlon Rd.

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at 5:34 a.m., but the garage had already mostly collapsed.

Orleans County fire investigators are at the scene, looking for the cause of the fire.

Firefighters are trying to cut through metal and wood to put out hot spots.

The Town of Carlton Highway Department is expected on the scene with a backhoe to spread out the smoldering debris, to prevent fire flareups.
