Fire crews were out in the chilly temperatures battling a fire on Clay Avenue Friday evening.

Crews were called to between Dewey Avenue and Adrian Street around 7:15 p.m. When they got on scene, thankfully, everyone was out of the building. But, crews found smoke showing from the second floor.

Crews were able to knock down the fire inside a bedroom. But, the low temperatures made work a little bit harder.

"Prior to this evening, they were already doing training on cold weather operations," says Joseph. "Everything we do is with safety in mind."

But, obviously, it's only November: This is just the beginning. Speaking with News10NBC, Battalion Chief Joseph reminded residents to keep fire hydrants clear. "What we like to do is called 'adopt a fire hydrant.' If it's out in front of your house, just make sure four foot around the fire hydrant is always clean."

Joseph says fire crews were able to stop Friday's fire and save the home.
