UTICA- A fire at 514 Henry Street in Utica sends two firefighters to the hospital for evaluation.
The fire broke out just before 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Firefighters with the Utica Fire Department said smoke and flames were coming from the first floor of the residence and eventually spread to the attic.
They say everyone got out safely, but two firefighters were transported to the hospital for evaluation and two pit bulls were rescued.
The Red Cross is assisting four people.
Utica Fire Chief Scott Ingersoll says the fire was challenging because of the size of the structure. "When you've got three floors that are involved in a fire to varying degrees, you got to chase it and open up the walls and ceiling to get to the fire to successfully extinguish the fire, so that creates a lot of extensive manpower operations."
The Utica Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
