Firefighters were called to a house fire on Wall Street in Auburn on Tuesday.
At 7:25 a.m. firefighters was dispatched to a structure fire at 94 Wall Street. Upon arrival, light smoke was coming from the second floor of the house.
Crews entered the house to begin an interior attack but were met with zero visibility and high heat conditions. Due to the maze-like configuration inside the house, interior crews were not able to reach the fire room before they were forced to retreat due to that high heat.
Exterior crews then attacked the fire from the outside, and interior crews were able to re-enter the house and finish extinguishing the fire.
The house sustained fire and smoke damage upstairs, and water damage downstairs. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. One dog was rescued from the house, and there were no reported injuries.
