BATAVIA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire at Baskin Farms in Batavia.

It occurred on Sunday afternoon and received a response from multiple fire companies in Genesee and Wyoming counties. At the time, seven people were working at the farm.

“Nine years ago, we had a fire here,” Bethany Fire Chief Jeff Fluker said. “A paper mill is usually what catches on fire due to the heat. Paper is combustible.”
