Early this morning firefighters responded to a call on Canaan Road in Ellenburg Depot, New York.
The fire started on the side of a duplex. A woman living inside the building made it out safely. The fire chief said no one else was inside. Smoke was coming out of two windows when first responders arrived.
"We attacked it through the windows," Ellenburg Depot Fire Chief Louie Lavalley said describing how firefighters contained the blaze. "We had a good knock down and we were able to stop it and contain it right through the one apartment."
One apartment suffered fire and smoke damage. The second apartment had smoke damage. Residents in both apartments were not allowed to return.
The Red Cross helped provide food, clothes and shelter to the three people living in the duplex. The cause of the fire is still unknown. The fire is now under investigation.
