Deadly fire on Hudson Avenue

Rochester, N.Y. - One man has died, and a woman is battling severe smoke inhalation after a house fire in the City of Rochester.

The fire happened just before noon on Wednesday near Wilkins Street.

Deputy Fire Chief Martin McMillan said firefighters had to fight through flames to get to a woman on the second floor of the burning house. She was rescued and taken to the hospital.

It was a few more minutes before they found the second victim, on the first floor. Friends said his name was Reggie. He died after being taken to the hospital.

They said he may have been sleeping on the first floor of the home on Hudson Avenue when flames broke out.
