A residence located directly behind the iconic Potato City Country Inn in central Potter County was leveled by an early-morning fire last Friday. Firefighters were summoned to the cabin off Rt. 6 in Sweden Township and found it fully engulfed in flames. Coudersport firefighters were joined by volunteers from departments in Galeton, Austin, Roulette and Ulysses. Water had to be shuttled from a pond on the opposite side of Rt. 6 atop Denton Hill. The structure was insured and there were no injuries. Cause of the blaze is being investigated.
