The Rome Fire Department has battled a blaze that broke out at 925 Elwood Street early Friday morning.

According to Deputy Chief Mark Kohlbrenner, the call came in just before 1 a.m. and when fire fighters responded there were flames coming from the front of the 2nd floor.

Upon arrival heavy fire was coming out of the second floor front windows. As a result a hose line was deployed to knock down those flames. Crews also made an interior attack on the 2nd floor to subdue a majority of the flames.

Initially first-responders were not able to access the attic so the aerial tower was deployed to spray more water into the windows. The fire was under control within 40 minutes. The local chapter of the Red Cross is assisting those displaced and the fire is still under investigation.

Six people were displaced as a result of the fire including a 4-year-old boy and an 8-month-old child. No injuries were reported.
