ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The Rochester Fire Department responded to multiple reports of a house on fire at 55 Laser Street early Sunday morning. They arrived at a heavy fire from the front of a 2.5-story single-family home.

There was widespread damage and a massive response by Rochester fire crews. News10NBC was on the scene and saw a utility pole on fire during the blaze.
