SCHENECTADY - A Tuesday morning fire severely damaged a recently vacant two-family home on Victory Avenue, officials said.

No injuries were reported in the blaze, Deputy Fire Chief Christopher Keough said.

Firefighters responded just after 1:30 a.m. to 120 Victory Ave. for a report of smoke coming from the roof, Keough said. They arrived to find flames coming from the second floor rear and the attic area.

Firefighters called a second alarm, bringing the rest of the available firefighters in. Firefighters were then able to extinguish it relatively quickly, Keough said.

No one was living in the building at the time, Keough said. The building is believed to have been recently vacant.

Gazette news gathering partner CBS6 quoted the building owner as indicating residents of both apartments recently moved out, two weeks ago and two days ago.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation, Keough said.
