Rochester fire fighters responded to a house fire that broke out at a home on Curtis St near Lyell Ave

The Rochester fire department said a neighbor saw the fire and called 911. One man lives at the home but was at work when the fire started around 4:45 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, flames were through the roof of the single family home at 76 Curtis street. The fire department believes the fire started on the second floor and quickly spread to the attic. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.

The fire was contained to the house and no one was hurt.

"We called him, he was at work and didn't know there was a fire," said Michael Dupra, Rochester Fire Dept. Deputy Chief. "Its not going to be occupiable. We'll have to find some housing for him, unfortunately. He's very distraught obviously."

The American Red Cross is assisting the man with housing.
