BREAKING: Glens Falls Fire

GLENS FALLS - Fire crews battled a huge blaze in Glens Falls Thursday evening that destroyed an apartment building and damaged two others, including a church, which had damage to some windows according to the fire chief.

Fire Chief James Schrammel says the call came in at 6:56 p.m. for a fire at 5 Sherman Avenue. He said the heat damaged 7 Sherman Ave.

The chief said firefighters went in through the first floor and up to the third to rescue two people who had been spotted in a window. 

One firefighter was taken to the hospital, treated and released. Chief Schrammel said he did not know how that firefighter was hurt. He said three people were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

The Red Cross is assisting about 25 people who were burned out of their homes. There was no indication Thursday night of what started the fire.
