The fire started on the second story and spread throughout the floor of the Edgewood Drive home, police said.

“As soon as I came up we started hearing rounds going off inside the structure,” Port Chester Fire Chief Ed Quinn told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “I did not put anybody inside the structure, although we did lay a line to the front door so as soon these stopped going off we could make our advance and that’s what we did.”

A 24-year-old woman was inside the house when the fire started but escaped without injuries.
