Rochester, N.Y. - Fire investigators continue to talk to
witnesses and piece together how a Locust Street home went up in flames Thursday morning.
They're also reviewing pictures taken of the charred house before it was demolished hours after the fire.
Investigators have not ruled out arson.
The firefighters who were inside the burning home shared how dangerous the situation was with 13WHAM today.
They showed us the charred uniforms the firefighters wore fighting back the flames.
One firefighter was burned on the hand and neck.
Three other firefighters were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
Lt. Thomas Rogan described what he and his colleagues faced inside the burning home.
"Fully involved fire started blowing through the hallway. We shut the door to buy ourselves some time," Rogan said.
He said they kept trying to find a way to move further into the house.
But they quickly realized it was too dangerous and backed out of the home.
Once outside, they determined the four people in the home had escaped and no one else was inside.
Some of those people who were in the home at the time of the fire escaped to the roof and had to jump to the ground.
