Schenectady firefighters sounded two alarms to battle a fire in an occupied 1-1/2 story dwelling. Upon arrival, flames were venting from the first floor, extending to the second. The crew from Engine 1 quickly stretched handlines, knocking the main body of fire down in minutes. All occupants made it out safely. The 0435 fire was brought under control in less than an hour.
