Fire crews weary from battling a massive blaze at Fiber Conversion in Broadalbin on Thursday had their hands full again Friday morning with a house fire on Vandenburg Point in Mayfield.
In Broadalbin, meanwhile, volunteers had to return to the textile processing plant a couple of times Friday to douse hot spots in the wreckage. And village officials issued a boil-water advisory as a precaution, based on a recommendation from the state Health Department.
Officials said the firefighting efforts caused a drop in pressure and may have disturbed some rust in the system.
Because of the amount of water used, some customers lost service altogether while others experienced very low pressure, Broadalbin village Clerk-Treasurer Sheila Bleyl said in an e-mail.
