Spring Creek Airport building destroyed in Sunday night fire

Posted September 2, 2015 at 7:31 pm

Fire erupted late Sunday night at Spring Creek Airport completely destroying the old office building and motel that sits on the property.
According to Albany Fire Chief Robert Roeper, the only thing firefighters could do was make sure the fire was contained to the building initially involved.
“When we got there it was already fully involved,” Roeper said. “We couldn’t do anything.”
Roeper said residents who lived in the area, heard an explosion and then reported the fire. The initial call came into Clinton County Dispatch around 9:56 p.m. Sunday night.
Smoke and flames shot up into the air and with the full moon Sunday night, the billowing smoke could be seen from the 127 By-Pass.

“The investigation is still ongoing,”
