DWI charge lodged
A Ticonderoga woman faces felony charges for allegedly driving while intoxicated with a infant in the vehicle.
Ticonderoga police said Keiyana Turner, 20, was pulled over May 22 during a local crackdown on drunken driving and was found to be intoxicated. Police said a 1-year-old passenger was in the car.
Turner faces a felony charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated under Leandra's Law, which makes it a felony to drive under the influence with a minor in the vehicle.
Turner was arraigned in Ticonderoga Town Court and was released. Fire damages home
A mother and her two small children safely escaped an accidental fire that damaged the second floor of their home in Witherbee May 24.
Brandy Rosselli and her children, a 6-year-old and 1-year-old, were home at 5:45 a.m. when smoke alarms began to sound. Mrs. Rosselli quickly got everyone out of the house at 7 Maiden Way in Witherbee and called 911.
Mrs. Roselli's husband, Eric, was at work at International Paper's Ticonderoga mill when the fire began.
Mineville-Witherbee firefighters got assistance from Moriah, Port Henry and Crown Point at the fire, with Ticonderoga on standby in Port Henry's station. The County Air One truck from Westport was called to refill firefighters' air packs.
The residence was insured, and adjusters were coming to do a damage assessment.
No injuries were reported fighting the fire.
