Crews responding to two-alarm structure fire on Ida Street in Troy

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Fire crews are responding to a major structure fire at 38 Ida Street in Troy.

Officials say the fire began around 2:45 Tuesday morning, building into a major two-alarm fire.

Firefighters were pulled from the building out of concerns for their safety. Hours later, crews were still working to extinguish hot spots.

Fire officials say the fire started in a vacant building on Ida Street in Troy. The building does have power, though neighbors say they’re not aware of any squatters living in or using the building.

The fire began to spread to a second, neighboring home and its occupant was evacuated safely. Firefighters were able to extinguish that additional fire before any major damage was done to the home.

Officials say there are no reports of any injuries at this time.

News10 ABC has a crew at the scene and will continue to bring you further details as they become available.
