UTICA, N.Y. -- Fire crews were called to a fire on 1013 Mary St. in Utica around 3 p.m., Saturday afternoon.
According to Utica Fire Chief, Scott Ingersoll, the fire started in a multi-family home. He says eight people were transported to the hospital and six of the eight jumped out of windows. He said some of them were children.
Ingersoll says injuries range from burns to bone fractures. Some injuries are critical. Ingersoll also said that some people suffered from smoke inhalation.
He says the fire did extend to 1011 Mary St., but they were able to save that home before any serious damage was done.
The roof of the home located at 1013 Mary St., collapsed and it's completely destroyed, according to Ingersoll.
The American Red Cross is assisting four adults and two 7-year-old children displaced after the fire.
A GoFundMe has also been created for the victims.
