RENSSELAER - Three firefighters got out just in time before part of a floor collapsed while battling an afternoon fire at 40 Partition St. in Rensselaer.

The chief tells NewsChannel 13  the fire started in the back of the building on the first floor, but they're not sure how.

The building housed a Burmese Market and an apartment above.

No one was hurt.

The Red Cross is helping those displaced by the fire.
