ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Rochester Fire Department crews responded to two fires Tuesday evening, within twenty minutes of each other, and overcame each fire with no civilian or firefighter injuries reported.
Officials say firefighters responded to 600 North Goodman Street around 9:15 p.m. for the report of something burning inside. They say it took about 30 minutes to bring the fire under control and all occupants made it safely out of the two and a half story home.
While the fire damage was contained to the second floor, the rest of the residence sustained smoke and water damage. The Red Cross is assisting residents there and there were no injuries reported.
Also in the 9 p.m. hour Tuesday, around 9:30 p.m., RFD crews were called to the area of Lincoln Avenue and Copley Street for a report of smoke coming from a building.
Firefighters observed heavy smoke in the area upon arrival. Second and third alarms were called due to the size of the structure.
Officials say firefighters were ultimately able to contain the fire to one portion of the building, and no injuries were reported.
