Thirty-eight people escaped a fire at the Capron Street Lofts in Rochester early Friday morning.
Investigators say the fire started at a bar next door and the flames spread to the apartment building. The sprinkler system was activated. A video sent to use by a viewer shows the flames on Capron Street, near the Geva Theatre.
“I live on the fourth floor and as I came down the building I just saw a lot flames, all of our windows are cracking,” explained Sade Begley, resident.
Some residents were able to return to their homes later in the morning.
