WATERFORD, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Firefighters are on the scene of a structure fire at the Strawberry Ridge Apartments and will continue to be throughout the night.
No injuries were reported and all the pets also got out unscathed. There is no cause of the fire at this time but it is under investigation.
Smoke and flames were billowing out of the roof and the heat of the fire was so intense it melted the siding of buildings close by.
Several fire departments were on the scene to help put out the fire. Multiple firefighters were looked at due to protocol with hot days such as today.
Because of the close quarters of the apartment complex, the fire is more difficult to put out. Firefighters are still trying to work on the hotspots checking if the building is structurally sound.
NEWS10″s Nicole Hart was on the scene at 6 p.m. and will continue to be for the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
