The operators of a local funeral home are thanking the local police and fire departments for their fast response to a fire at their Herkimer location.

The fire at the Petykiewicz, Iocovozzi  and Burns Funeral Home broke out early Tuesday morning.

Vincent Iocovozzi and Heather Rauch also say they are eternally grateful to the community for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.

Iocovozzi and Rauch say they will be operating out of their Frankfort location while they rebuild what was lost.
