Basement fire on Grand Island causes $150,000 damage

A basement fire Monday in a Sandy Beach Road home on Grand Island caused an estimated $150,000 in damage, officials said.

Chris Soluri, chief of the Grand Island Fire Company, said firefighters responded at 7:19 p.m., after the homeowner found smoke coming from the basement. Firefighters encountered heavy smoke pouring from the first and second floor doors and windows of the house when they arrived.

The fire was out at 7:45 p.m., Soluri said. No injuries were reported.

The fire was confined to the basement, but the first and second floors of the house sustained considerable smoke damage, Soluri said. Total damage was estimated at $100,000 to the structure and $50,000 to contents.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Tuesday.
