New York State Police Investigating House Fire

CORRECTION: The Chautauqua County Arson team was used, not a State Police arson team. We regret the error. 

POMFRET-A house fire occurred Saturday evening at 8795 Hahn Rd. according to  State Police Captain Eric Balon.

Balon told reporter Ryan Hedrick the residents were out of town at the time of the fire.

The captain said an investigation is ongoing.

“Our arson investigation team will look around,” Balon said. “If it looks deliberate, then we will conduct a criminal investigation like we would for most felony cases.”
