Millport Fire Damages Home

     MILLPORT, NY (WENY) -- A man is without a home tonight, after a fire started in the basement and spread early this afternoon.
     Multiple fire crews responded to the blaze on Hanrahan Road in Millport, off Route 14 today, near the Schuyler-Chemung County line. Fire officials tell us an older man lives at the home, and was there with his grandson when the fire broke out, but got out safely.
      The cause of the blaze is still under investigation. We're told the home is still standing, but is basically destroyed.
     The homeowner is being helped by the Red Cross, and staying with family.
