A person was injured during a large fire that tore through a boarded-up building on East Main Street and Alexander Street Monday. According to crews on scene, the fire occurred at the same structure that was damaged Friday as a result of a vehicle blaze that was caught on video. Officials say the apartment building had been boarded up since that Friday incident and that utilities were supposed to be shut off. Despite that, a person was found inside the residence Monday morning when firefighters responded to the blaze around 7 a.m. That person was rescued and transported to a hospital with injuries, the extent of which is unknown at this point. Members of the Rochester Fire Department declared a working fire upon arrival but eventually upgraded it to a three-alarm fire.
