House fire under investigation

Rochester, N.Y. -- The Rochester Fire Department responded to a basement fire on the city's northeast side Sunday morning.

The fire in the single-family home on Coleman Terrace started around 5 a.m. in the basement and caused smoke damage to the first and second floors of the home.

According to investigators, the smoke alarms woke up the three adults and five children in the house and everyone was able to escape safely. One woman was brought down from a first floor roof by ladder.

No one was injured in the fire, and the cause was still being determined.

The Red Cross provided food, clothing and shelter to the displaced family.
