At 9:44am on November 18th 2019 we were toned for a house explosion on West Branch Road in the Town of Allegany. There was no one home at the time of the incident and at this time no injuries have been reported. This is still an active incident and we ask everyone to avoid the area. There are several agencies on scene conducting an investigation and updates will follow. ... See MoreSee Less
I heard there was a dog home can anyone officially confirm if the puppers is okay?
How terrifying. Mentally. Physically. Emotionally. So glad the people and dog are safe as well as the first responders.
I heard a dog was in the house!! I hope the doggo is okay 😮
Yikes! I'm glad no one was home!..hope the dog is ok..be thankful that there wasn't a house full of people during the holidays!
What a terrible thing to happen to anyone glad they r all well!
Thank the lord no one was killed or injured.. even pups ok
I saw this on TV. So glad doggie was found alive. So sad. There was a 4 homes fire in Hornel today also that houses many. All lost their homes.
Wow...looks like the one in Randolph, years ago
I was so relieved to hear nobody was home and that their dog made it. I was working on Maple Street in Olean when this happened. I heard and felt the concussion.
So tragic. Prayers!
My heart just breaks for them and for their terrible loss, but so thankful there was no loss of life.
Praying for this family and that they lay their heads down tonight in peace knowing that material things can be replaced but with God's grace they have each other and their pup! ❤ If anyone hears of items they need, I'd love to help out.
Thank God that everyone is ok.
I heard it all the way up on Hillcrest Ave. I put on my coat and walked around the outside of my house. I thought either someone ran into my house or a tree fell on it. I've been stumped all say wondering. ...
Eventually here somebody should start a thread in Allegany and surrounding areas Facebook pages for donations. These pages reach far and wide.
What an overwhelming tragedy. I am so glad to hear no one was injured. I live very close by around the corner- is the road open local traffic?
Glad nobody was hurt & the dog was ok.
Where is west branch road is that off the four mile rd
Thank God no injuries
I have known Ron for a l0ng time. Everytime there was a Little League event in Allegany he was there helping out. Let's return the favor and help Ron and family.
So sad prayers sent. Does anyone have a picture of the house before the explosion and that sounds and looks bot so good. The whole house is gone
Glade no one got hurt and the dog is ok wondering what could have happened
Any updates on the cause? Some folks are wondering if the oil wells had something to do with it?
It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of auxiliary member Diana Rzepka. Diana was a member of the ladies auxiliary for 47 years and the board of commissioners secretary and treasurer for 20 years. We will pray for her family members and loved ones at this difficult time. ... See MoreSee Less
