“Time is of the essence,” Lt. Ryan Fleming, Rochester Fire Department. “So they found the door closest to the fire. It was locked. They breached the door. They make an aggressive attack. You find your search pattern. You get in there, stay low, search for victims. In this case, they found two of them.”

The extent of victims’ injuries still remains unclear.
