SCHENECTADY – One person was seriously injured in a fire Wednesday evening at a home on Regent Street in Schenectady, fire officials said Thursday.

One resident, described as a young man, was taken to Westchester Medical Center’s burn unit for treatment, Assistant Fire Chief Don Mareno said Thursday.

Further information on the person’s condition was unavailable.

The fire call came in just after 6:30 p.m. at 1015 Regent St. Firefighters were met by two people outside the building, and one person trapped on the rear roof, Mareno said. Firefighters rescued the person on the roof. The seriously injured man was apparently one of the two already out, Mareno said.

Firefighters got the fire under control in about 20 minutes, Mareno said. No firefighters were injured.

The home sustained significant fire damage to its first floor and smoke damage to the second floor.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Thursday, Mareno said.
