UTICA, N.Y. -- The American Red Cross is assisting at least ten people this morning after an overnight fire in the city of Utica.
The call came in just before 1 a.m. Thursday morning at 1203 Lansing St.
Flames were coming from three windows on the second floor, and heavy smoke was coming from the attic space, according to fire crews responding to the scene.
Fire officials say there were five occupants living on the second floor, four people were living on the first floor.
Chief Scott Ingersoll, of the Utica Fire Department, says crews were able to quickly respond and put out the fire.
"There were smoke detectors going off," said Ingersoll. "The fire appears to be just in the rear of the structure extended slightly into the attic. The fire has been knocked down, the companies did a really nice job protecting the internal contents of the structure. They were able to cover up a lot of the items and get things covered up, so we could salvage them."
No injuries were reported.
Ingersoll says a cat was rescued from the second floor and revived using a pet-oxygen mask.
The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
