UTICA, N.Y. -- A home in Utica was nearly destroyed after a fire ripped through the building.

Fire crews say smoke was coming from the attic at 1518 Dudley Avenue, around 1:45 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

The two-and-a-half story home had multiple families living inside, and the six resident inside made it out safely along with three dogs.

At one point firefighters had to quickly get out of the home when the roof started to cave in.

“When crews were making a search the roof collapsed, so we pulled everybody out and we went to a defense operation. Basically all that as I was putting a latter stream up, putting water down on the structure from the aerial device and protecting the exposures around it,” said Utica Fire Department Interim Chief Scott Ingersoll.

Firefighters had some difficulties getting enough water to the home, because of low water pressure.
