DEXTER — A fire in the engine of a small plane at the Watertown International Airport activated Jefferson County’s emergency response personnel but the fire was extinguished before they arrived on scene, according to Airport Manager Grant W. Sussey.

An entry in the county’s dispatch log showed crews responding to an “aircraft incident” at 8:10 p.m. Friday.

Mr. Sussey said that there was a fire in a single-engine Cessna airplane during engine starting but that it was extinguished before crews arrived on scene.

Jefferson County Emergency Management Director Joseph D. Plummer did not return a call seeking comment Saturday night.
