Watch: Fire Rips Through Two Adams Homes
Fire extensively damaged two homes in the village of Adams Saturday afternoon.
The fire apparently started inside 24 Grange Avenue around 1:30 pm, but then jumped to a neighboring house.
"The houses on this street are close," said Bob Simpson of the Adams fire department. "As you can see, it's a very narrow street and things are really tight here."
Firefighters battled to keep the blaze confined to the two structures and not spread further.
"It was very scary, I could have lost some very good friends," said Anthony Mays, who lives near by.
One person was treated at the scene for a fire-related injury.
Jason Silsby and his family lived in one of the homes damaged by fire.
"It happened in a matter of minutes," Silsby said. "I looked out my door and the next thing I knew, the side of my house was on fire."
The family planned to stay with family and friends while they figure out what to do next.
