No serious injuries were reported in the blaze, which ignited in a West 11th Street home off Avenue C shortly before 11 p.m. Friday, June 7, and quickly spread.

Flames fully engulfed the main home and began to spread, bringing dozens of firefighters from neighboring communities.

The fire was declared under control around 1:30 a.m.
