ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Multiple different fire crews responded to a structure fire that broke out on Hudson Avenue on Monday.

The call for a fire came in around 6:45 a.m. Upon arrival fire crews found the two story brick structure with heavy fire on the second floor.

“A second alarm was called quickly due the size of the structure, which stretched for a full city block, and the amount of fire involvement,” officials said in a statement. “Three trucks were positioned on three sides of the building and three ground monitors were able to put the fire under control in about 45 minutes.”

A portion of Hudson Avenue was closed off while crews work.

The Building Department was called to check the structural integrity of the building. It was determined the building did not need to be demolished, just boarded up to prevent unauthorized entry.

It isn’t immediately clear the cause of the fire.
