  • Text size: + -

One dog was rescued from a house fire in Rochester Saturday morning.

Fire crews were called to Avenue E around 8 a.m. Firefighters say the original call reported two people unaccounted for, but they did multiple searches of the house and did not find anyone. They did rescue a dog.

Emergency crews say the fire extended from the first floor to the second floor and roof area.

Deputy Chief Bill Holtz of the Rochester Fire Department said, "It was a difficult fire to fight. With the story and a half houses there are knee walls that the fire gets a pretty good start behind and we have to basically tear the house apart as we get into the attic area."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
