Fire hit a house on Grand Avenue in Rochester this afternoon (Thurs), causing heavy damage.
The Rochester Fire Department says crews arrived shortly after 1:15 to find fire and smoke coming from the second floor of the single family home. The occupant of the house escaped with a burned hand. His dog also escaped, but turned aggressive and bit one of the firefighters. He was locked in the basement until Animal Control arrived and the firefighter also went to the hospital for his dog bite.
The fire was out in about 30 minutes, and the cause remains under investigation.
