Heavy winds didn't help a fire that sparked at a Prospect Avenue home. The blaze began around midnight. It started on the first floor of the building before quickly spreading to the second story.

According to scanner traffic, firefighters originally believed several victims were trapped upstairs. All made it out safe, but officials told us 3 people were taken to ECMC for treatment. The Red Cross also helped, assisting another three victims.

Firefighters still don't know what caused the fire. Investigators say the home sustained just over $12,000 in damages.
