Six people were left homeless after an overheated extension cord connected to a space heater sparked a house fire Wednesday in the Village of Attica, according to the Wyoming County Office of Emergency Services.
No injuries were reported.
The fire was reported at 4:28 p.m. at a house on Washington Street. Officials said it took 4 1/2 hours to extinguish the fire. The estimated cost of the damage was $85,000.
The displaced occupants of the rental property were being assisted by the Red Cross, officials said.
Two family cats were lost in the fire.
