SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Freezing conditions make it tough for Syracuse firefighters to put out a fire at a home on Cannon Street.

Crews found heavy flames and smoke in the attic just after 9 p.m. last night.

Firefighters said it took them about ten minutes to knock it down, but the overhaul at the scene is a project.

"As soon as you get ice forming you can get slip hazards where someone can fall and get hurt. That slows the pace down a little bit so we can make sure we're doing our job effectively and not getting anybody hurt."

Investigators are still looking into what sparked the flames. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
