Three adults relocated after Bloss Street fire destroys their home

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Crews battled a house fire on 48 Bloss St. on Sunday afternoon. The Rochester Fire Department received a report of two houses on fire. The first RFD company arrived within 4 minutes to heavy fire coming from a home, and the threat of fire reaching a neighboring home.

An additional fire company was requested because of the amount of fire. Due to the high winds, and the spread of fire to all floors, a second alarm was requested and the firefighters were pulled out of the home. They continued to battle the fire from the outside, and it took just over an hour to get the fire under control.

There was significant fire damage to all floors of the home, which required it to be torn down. The neighboring house suffered some heat damage to the outside, but firefighters prevented any inside fire damage. Three adults who lived in the home are receiving help from the Red Cross.

No civilians or firefighters were injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
