(WHAM) - Rochester fire crews battled a fire on Saratoga Avenue on Wednesday morning.

Saratoga Ave. was closed between Lorimer and Costar Streets for much of the morning.

The Rochester Fire Department said it was called to the house around 5:35 a.m. by a person passing by the house.

Firefighters arrived less than five minutes later and spotted smoke coming from the back of the house on the first floor.

Once firefighters got to the house, they had to deal with low hanging wires on the inside of the house and boarded up windows on the 2nd floor.

The fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes.

Everyone was able to get out of the house safely and no one was injured.

Fire investigators are working to determine a cause.
