Syracuse home catches fire, roof collapses

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse firefighters were called to a house fire at 310 Palmer Avenue at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 29.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, they found a two-and-a-half-story home with fire showing from the front.

Although the home was known to be vacant, crews still searched the home for people trapped inside. No one was found, SFD said.

As crews pushed into the house to fight the fire, the flames began to intensify on the second floor, and the conditions began to deteriorate. Once flames started to come through the roof, crews moved out of the home and began to fight the fire from outside.

Crews spent over an hour extinguishing the flames, said SFD.

The home suffered extensive fire, water and smoke damage, along with a partially collapsed roof. It had also suffered a previous fire, according to SFD.

No civilians or firefighters were injured, and a total of 39 fire personnel responded to the blaze.
