Fire destroys Nolan’s on the Lake
Finger Lakes Times 2 hrs ago

CANANDAIGUA — Nolan’s on the Lake, a popular Canandaigua restaurant, was destroyed in an early-morning fire Thursday.

Nolan’s is at 726 S. Main St. in the city. Canandaigua police said a passerby called in the fire at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

When crews arrived, smoke was reported coming from the roof and under the eaves, and Ben Cramer, acting chief of the Canandaigua Fire Department said that responders called a four-alarm fire to be able to call in multiple crews.

Nine fire crews from Ontario and Yates counties and more than 80 firefighters responded to the scene. It took about four hours for firefighters to get the fire under control, though crews remained at the scene most of the day Thursday.

Most of the building collapsed, and an excavator had to be used to demolish parts of the one-story building. Officials say the restaurant is a complete loss.

No injuries were reported, and so far, there is no word on what caused the fire.

The property is owned by developer David Genecco who also is one of the developers of the Finger Lakes Resort project.

Nolan’s, an upscale restaurant near the New York Wine and Culinary Center, specialized in steaks and seafood and was a popular spot for weddings and receptions.

Such a shame. They were doing it seems very well. Every time I drove by the place was jammed, much like the Rio on Bemis Street. Too bad Schooners is also more than likely not available for them. Looks like Byne Dairy downtown is going to be a Sports Bar - know a few friends who plan to open it. These people worked very hard to build their business. Such a shame.

Chief Mark strikes again .... when will Queen Ellen and her court wake up. Good article by J. Sherwood at MPN site would download it but for some reason I'm not able to at this time. His attorney and Mark discuss a 5 day loss of pay pertaining to email he sent to drivers as a follow up to previous training and copied it to CM and Council who felt it was meant to discredit and inflame the issue. Way to go Chief. His Court case has a Court date today.

I'm guessing he needs the money worse than he needs a commercial rental property.

Sprinkler requirements can be found in the NFPA codes in short it has to do with building construction and number of stories and occupancy.

Genneco does seem to have issues with properties burning. Scooners, The old Pancake House, the trailers behind there and now Nolans.

Over the weekend the American Insurance Adjustors crew were on site and it appeared that maybe the Nolans staff was going through the rubble as well. The AIA staff consists of insurance underwriters, arson investigators and structurial engineers/contractors. So while the City investigors brought in the State fire investigator the fire will be examined by a third party with no ties to the community. There investigation will go further than finding the actual cause.

Just hope Genneco dosent screw Nick and crew.

How would leaving a stove burner on start a fire? The stove would be all metal of course. What is it that ignited?

Well looks like council is kissing Genneco's backside ..at the press conference today it was made public that the City is looking into the filing of a block grant application to assist in rebuilding Nolans. So now Diamond Dave is begging for money for this property. Nolans should take there insurance money..loss of business money and move into the new buildings on lakeshore. They would love to have them and would most likely do a buildout to there plans. At least then they would have a view of the lake.

And the cause of the fire was determind by a security camera that wasn't destroyed. I agree Jeff it seems a little funny to me. Perhaps it created enough heat to melt grease in the vent system that was then set on fire. Only a guess. Haven't had tine to ask the paid guys. Still took a long time to come up with the cause.

Story from Saturdays Messenger.

They did have a fire extinguishing system over the stove in the exhaust hood it did go off but not until the fire had spread past it into the exhaust pipes. Sprinklers were not required as building codes grand fathered it due age of original condtruction and renovations.
