Officers and UPS driver roust families from burning Baldwinsville building

A UPS driver, two Baldwinsville police officers and two Onondaga County deputies rousted eight families out of a burning apartment building Monday night.

Darryl Cooper, a UPS Freight driver, said he was driving home from work on Oswego Street at around 11 p.m. when he saw smoke in the area.

He said at first he thought it was someone burning leaves.

"Then “I happened to be coming up over the hill when I saw flames start going through the roof,” Cooper said Tuesday afternoon.

Cooper said he pulled into the Town Square Apartments complex at 116 Oswego St. and began knocking on the doors of apartments in the building that was on fire.

He found a woman in the hallway. “I don’t think she realized the fire had spread as much as it had,” said Cooper, 40, of Lysander.

He and the woman began knocking on doors, Cooper said.  Full Story.......
