An early evening fire at a Sunrise Terrace home sends one woman to the hospital.

Firefighters were called to 127 Adams Drive just before seven Wednesday evening. Officials say firefighters from several different departments were on scene battling the blaze which caused extensive damage to the interior of the home. Authorities say a 45 year old woman was injured and taken to a local hospital.

"The initial responders were two deputies from the Sheriff's Office. They attempted to make entry into the home, but were overcome by smoke. So once the fire department got here, the fire department, with their breathing packs, were able to remove the woman from the home," said Undersheriff of Broome County Frederick Akshar.

The extent of the woman's injuries were not known at this time.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
