A home in LeRoy originally thought to have been saved when fire swept an adjacent barn, has now been declared a total loss.
The fire occurred Monday morning on a horse farm along Warsaw Raod.
Fire fighters believed at the time that a fire wall between the barn and the house was enough to save the living quarters. LeRoy First Assistant chief Josh Pfendler says today that only a few personal items and some photographs could be saved from the house.
The Buffalo Catholic Diocese has announced a plan to monitor 18 priests who were accused of sexually abusing children.

Most of the COVID-19 restrictions put in place statewide to prevent the virus from spreading have now been lifted.

There will still be some safety guidelines in effect at places such as schools and health care facilities.
