NEW BALTIMORE, N.Y. -- The Red Cross is helping a New Baltimore family after an overnight house fire.
The fire broke out early this morning on Roberts Hill Road.
Seven people were inside at the time, but everyone got out safely, including a 2-year-old.
Two adults are at Albany Medical Center being treated for smoke inhalation, and another person has minor burns. They are expected to be OK.
The humid weather and no nearby fire hydrants made it difficult for crews to put out the fire. They had to use a pond a quarter of a mile up the road.
"Big problem we had is the number of firefighters that we needed because they couldn’t work for very long with the turnout gear and the amount of fire,” said New Baltimore Fire Chief John Wallace.
Around 75 to 100 firefighters worked to put out the fire.
Investigators believe the cause was electrical.
