New York Minute: January 10th

The stories making headlines across the state.
A four-year-old boy died Tuesday afternoon during a house fire in Richford. Fire crews responded around 12:30 p.m. to the home to find the home fully engulfed in flames. The young boy's parents and two sisters were able to escape. Neighbors and firefighters tried to rescue the boy but were unable to save the child. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Large amounts of ice up river from the falls led authorities to issue a flash flood warning for two islands in the area.
