JAMESTOWN, N.Y. — The Jamestown Fire Department is battling a fire at Jamestown Royal Inc., a multi-story building, on Crescent Street.
The fire prompted the closure of some roads on Friday evening. Crescent Street, between Cheney and Kipp streets, was closed by Jamestown Police.
Route 394 (East 2nd Street) was also closed, from Winsor Street to Buffalo Street, around 8 p.m. as crews battled the blaze. It reopened, both ways, shortly before 10:30 p.m.
According to a report by the Jamestown Post Journal newspaper, area residents were forced to evacuate, and volunteer fire companies from the surrounding area were called in for additional support.
