1 male, 1 female dead after fire on North Salina Street
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- One male and one female are dead after a massive apartment fire at 1315 North Salina Street.
Deputy Fire Chief Bill Elderbroom tells NewsChannel 9 the two victims were found in the apartment where the fire started around 11:52 Friday night.
When crews arrived on scene, they found heavy fire coming from the front windows on the first floor and called for a second alarm to protect a nearby building. Firefighters worked through the morning to get the blaze under control and extinguish hotspots.
Elderbroom says one victim was removed from the building, but another was left inside for investigators, as they search for the cause.
Officials have not released the names of the victims.
No one else was hurt. The cause is under investigation.
