Video by Guy Zampatori Jr. (guyz65) today on Avenue E in Rochester, New York. Firefighters rescued a dog from the burning home.
The Rochester Fire Department put out a fire at what appeared to be an empty house Saturday morning.
A neighbor called in the fire at Avenue E and Conkey Avenue, said Deputy Chief Bill Holtz. Two residents were unaccounted for, but firefighters searched the house twice and didn’t find anyone.
Emergency crews say the fire extended from the first floor to the second floor and roof area.
Deputy Chief Bill Holtz of the Rochester Fire Department said, “It was a difficult fire to fight. With the story and a half houses there are knee walls that the fire gets a pretty good start behind and we have to basically tear the house apart as we get into the attic area.”
