In the early morning hours of June 1, 2023, Rochester firefighters were dispatched to Champlain Street for a house fire. On arrival, companies found heavy fire conditions on multiple floors of a 2-1/2 story home which was quickly extending to homes on either side. Large lines were stretched and companies made entry into multiple homes for an aggressive interior attack. Multiple alarms were struck bringing extra manpower to the scene. Crews were able to get ahead of the fire and hold it mostly to the building of origin.
