Crews battle overnight structure fire in Troy


TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Crews are battling a fire that broke out overnight Tuesday at a multi-family residential building at Van Every Avenue.

Troy Fire Chief Eric McMahon said no one was injured in the fire but a child was transported to Albany Medical Center as a precaution because the child has a pre-existing medical condition.

He told NEWS10 the building sustained a significant amount of damage. He said the fire was very difficult to fight because crews encountered difficulties getting vehicles up the dead-end street.

Fourth Street remains blocked off due to an excess of water running down the street, McMahon added.

This story is developing and NEWS10 will continue to update as new information becomes available.
