ELMIRA, N.Y. -- Snow, wind and freezing temperatures made it hard for crews to put out a fire at a business in Elmira early Friday morning.

Sheesley's Sewer Service on Grand Central Avenue caught fire just before 1 a.m. Firefighters say it started in a garage and storage area attached to the main office building.

One commercial truck that was in the garage was damaged.

Crews say the weather was a challenge for them, but they were able to contain the fire before it spread further. No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Officials say the business is fully insured and should be able to get back to normal soon. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
