SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 27, Syracuse firefighters were called a house fire at 112 Hope Avenue.
Fire crews arrived on the scene and saw a one-and-a-half story home with heavy smoke coming from the second floor.
There were initial reports of people being trapped inside the home, so teams of firefighters began to search the home. No one was found and everyone had escaped before crews arrived, SFD said.
Additional firefighters began to stretch hoses into the home to fight the blaze. They then discovered that the fire was burning in the space between the first and second floor.
Firefighters then used tools to pull down the ceiling and were able to knock the main fire in roughly 20 minutes, according to SFD.
Crews the had to open ceilings and walls to make sure the fire had not spread to any other parts of the home.
The home suffered fire, water and smoke damage to the first and second floors.
Several people were displaced by the blaze and are now being assisted by the American Red Cross. No injuries were reported to civilians or fire personnel, SFD said.
