    A fire destroys a warehouse at Giddings Equipment and Kubota Tractors in Pittsford early Thursday afternoon, closing Route 7 as fire crews from area towns cannot put out the stubborn blaze. Tractors were pulled out of the building as flames consumed the structure.
    PITTSFORD - Flames consumed a garage at Giddings' Kubota tractor dealership on Route 7 today.

    No one was injured in the fire, which started in a building at the back of the property just south of town.

    But the yellow-sided, tin-roofed garage, which housed a number of tractors and snowmobiles was completely destroyed before firefighters from four towns were able to bring the conflagration under control.

    Pittsford Assistant Fire Chief Butch Shaw said the cause of the fire was not immediately known.

    We'll have more details in Friday's paper and online at www.RutlandHerald.com.
