One firefighter was hurt at the scene of a two-alarm blaze that caused heavy damage to a town of Windsor apartment house.

The fire at 1075 Old Route Seventeen was reported shortly before 10 o’clock this morning.

Windsor firefighters were assisted by units from West Windsor, Deposit, Ouaquaga, Five Mile Point and Harpursville.

Assistant fire chief Thomas Lias said the fire in the four-unit building was brought under control after about 45 minutes.

Lias said a Deposit firefighter sustained a cut under an eye as he was assisting with the mop-up operation after the blaze was extinguished. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Three of the four apartments in the structure were occupied. Lias estimated about seven people were displaced by the fire. The American Red Cross was called to provide assistance.

Investigators believe the blaze was caused by a child playing with a lighter. The fire originated in the living room of a first-floor apartment.
