HUDSON FALLS — A two-story home in Hudson Falls was heavily damaged Sunday after a fire started in the home’s basement.
Multiple fire departments from around Washington County were called to 4 Mulberry St. when the structure fire was reported around 1 p.m.
The initial report from the home was that a person may have been trapped inside, but Hudson Falls Police Chief Randy Diamond said everyone inside the home was able to get out and no injuries were reported.
Many neighbors and onlookers stood on porches and sidewalks in freezing temperatures to get a better look at firefighters ripping off doors and battling the blaze from all points of entry. At one point, flames were escaping from a second story window.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but was not believed to be suspicious.
Smoke from the house fire was substantial and was visible from the village center. The home suffered extensive smoke damage, and it was unclear whether it would be salvageable.
Volunteers from the Northeastern New York Chapter of the American Red Cross provided aid to two people following the fire.
Hudson Falls Fire, Kingsbury Fire, Fort Edward Fire, South Glens Falls Fire, Argyle Fire, Hartford fire, West Glens Falls Fire, South Queensbury Fire, Bay Ridge Fire, Fort Edward EMS, Fort Ann EMS, and Hudson Falls Police all responded.
