Arriving companies found heavy fire conditions in the first floor of the two-family, three story home. Firefighters used two handlines to extinguish the blaze, which was brought under control at 3:18am. Two occupants were treated by McCabe EMS at the scene for minor smoke inhalation. A fire investigation is underway, however, the fire appears to be accidental in nature.
