The Amsterdam Fire Department responded to a reported structure fire at 87 Wall St. on Tuesday around 11 p.m.

The two-family home was fully involved when firefighters arrived on the scene, according to Battalion Chief Robert Krygowski.

The building was occupied when the fire broke out, but no injuries were reported as a result of the blaze.

The structure was severely damaged before the fire was out and is not believed to be salvageable. Firefighters cleared the scene around 4 a.m.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Investigators remained on the scene throughout the morning and into the day Wednesday.

Emergency aid was immediately provided to four residents of the home after the fire broke out Tuesday by volunteers from the Northeastern New York Chapter of the American Red Cross.
