The Fire Department says the fire was reported at 1539 10th Avenue Southeast around 4:30 PM.

The danger from the powerlines and the risk from flowing gasoline in one of the vehicles impeded the firefighting efforts until Rochester Public Utilities crews arrived and cut off the power to the property.


The Fire Department says the cause of the fire remains under investigation. A dollar amount for the estimated loss is also not available.
