UTICA, N.Y. -- Utica firefighters responded to a house fire on Steuben Street Tuesday evening.
Calls came in just before 7:00 p.m. Fire Chief Scott Ingersoll tells NEWSChannel 2 the fire started on the second floor of the apartment house. There was heavy smoke damage to the unoccupied second floor. The chief says the family in the first floor apartment was going to receive help from the Red Cross. Power had to be cut to the home so it was not liveable.
No word yet on what caused the fire.
