At least six people were left homeless after fire damaged a two-story apartment building in Rotterdam Junction on Monday afternoon.
Crews arrived at the scene at 1281 Main Street to find the structure engulfed in smoke and flames.
It's believed the fire started on the second floor and spread quickly.
Fire officials say it took several hours to bring it under control because of high winds and the building's sub-divided interior.
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
The building said to be a total loss.
