UPDATE: One sent to hospital after Troy home catches fire

TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Crews worked to put out a fire in Troy Thursday evening.

The fire took place around 7:30 p.m. Thursday at 173 9th St. in Troy. One home was damaged, but crews evacuated the residences on either side of the house that was on fire.

It took crews about an hour to get the fire under control, but they stayed on scene into the night to put out hot spots.

A young man living on the second floor of the building told NEWS10 ABC his brother, who has cerebral palsy, was taken to the hospital. Officials said his injuries were minor.

Abdel Osman, who lived on the second floor of the home is devastated.

“I leave to go to the mall and my sister text me says the house is on fire so I come back and I see in the highway is smoke coming from the house I come in as the whole house immersion flights I’m shot them up so this is my house I live here,” Osman said.

Crews believe the fire started on third floor, and they don’t think it is suspicious.

A cause remains under investigation.
