ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A man and a woman were hospitalized after trying to put out a fire in their home on County Road 17 in Gorham, according to the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office.

On Thursday around 10 p.m., first responders were called to the home for the report of smoke inside the residence. Investigators said a small appliance beneath a desk caught fire and spread to the desk and the walls of the room.

Deputies said the homeowner took burning objects out of the room and sprayed the fire with a hose from outside. The fire caused minor damage but the homeowner was burned on his hand and a woman in the home suffered smoke inhalation.

The two were taken to Strong Memorial Hospital for treatment and are expected to recover. Firefighters extinguished the remaining hot spots and ventilated the home.
