TOWN OF SHELDON, N.Y. (WKBW) — A fire at a Wyoming County feed mill Thursday caused an estimated $2 million in damages, according to the Wyoming County Office of Emergency Services.

Officials say a call for a fire at Reisdorf Brothers Inc., located at 1830 Perry Road in the Town of Sheldon, came in around 9:15 a.m. Thursday.

11 different fire companies responded to the scene with several other agencies assisting. Crews were at the scene for six hours.
