The Rochester Fire Department IAFF 1071 Group 4 was dispatched from multiple calls to 911 for a vacant house on fire.

Overhaul took some time including finishing removing the chimney as it was structurally unsound. AMR Rochester was on scene rehabbing firefighters in the mid 80’s heat and sun. The fire is under investigation by the Fire Investigation Unit. Rochester Police shut traffic down for about an hour.
