BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. -- A fire on Milton Avenue in Ballston Spa displaces three people. The call came in around 12:15 Sunday afternoon.
Fire officials said the fire sparked in the attic, but the cause is still unknown. They said while the first and second floors of the apartment had some water damage, the attic and roof of the home were destroyed.
Officials said Sunday's mid-day weather created a difficult situation for firefighters.
“Unfortunately, with the wind blowing, it was blowing the fire on the windows on all four corners of the attic. So, once the window broke it was blowing the fire around in the attic. Once we were able to get in the attic we were able to put it out,” said Kevin Theriault, Ballston Spa Fire Chief.
No one was injured in the fire. The Red Cross is assisting those displaced.
