A fire on Galusha Street forced five people to flee their home late Friday night.

The Rochester Fire Department tells News10NBC that calls for the fire came in around 11:05 p.m. Friday night.

When crews arrived they found the adult and four children outside the home as the fire raged. Firefighters say weather condition made it more difficult to extinguish the flames and the fire threaten to spread to another home.

None of the occupants were injured by the fire, but one firefighter did suffer minor injuries while combating the blaze.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The residence is uninhabitable at this time and the occupants are currently being assisted by relatives.
