Barn burner referred to DEC

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — WILSON — Two local fire companies responded to a barn fire that was set intentionally by its owner Saturday morning.

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office received a call about a barn fire at 2716 Wilson Cambria Road at 9:23 a.m. Saturday. A responding deputy interviewed the property owner, Mark S. Milley, who took credit for the fire.

"Milley said he started the fire using lighter fluid and was only trying to burn half of the barn down to clear the land," the deputy's report said. "Milley was advised of the open burn laws in New York State and (was) told he would be contacted by a DEC officer for a follow up."

The responding deputy had arrived on the scene and found a "partial structure of an old barn engulfed in flames" behind Milley's house, the report said. Volunteers from the South Wilson and Wilson fire companies put out the fire.

A state Department of Environmental Conservation officer was in touch with Milley around noon Saturday, the deputy reported.
