Syracuse, NY (April 14, 2019) – On Friday, around 5:02 p.m., a firefighter was injured after saving a dog from a house fire. The incident took place on Court Street.
Police say that the dog that was saved by the firefighter was uninjured but the firefighter was taken to the Upstate University Hospital. He is expected to recover.
When firefighters made it to the scene of the fire, they found that smoke was on the second floor and the back half of the house was fully engulfed by flames. Firefighters knocked windows out of the house so that they could ventilate it. The fire was out within 10 minutes.
Six people have been displaced by the fire, though none of them were home at the time.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
