Several residents displaced in Prospect St. fire in Jamestown, one is hurt...
One person had to be hospitalized after they were hurt in an overnight fire at a two-story apartment house on the city of Jamestown's southside.  City Fire Lieutenant Don Mowery says crews were called to the scene at 39 Prospect Street -- near the corner of Prather -- about 12:30 a.m. Saturday.  Mowery says they found a lot of fire and smoke coming from parts of the structure.  He says they found heavy fire coming from the second-floor windows... and, the back apartment.  Mowery says first-arriving crews and city police helped several people out of the home... and, one male was hurt, and suffered some burns.  He was taken to UPMC Chautauqua Hospital... where he's being treated for his injuries.  Mowery says an off-duty shift was called in to assist at the scene.  He says it some some time to bring the blaze under control, and crews were there until about 9 this morning.  No other injuries were reported... and, the cause is under investigation.

Flags have been lowered to half-staff on New York state and New York City buildings to honor state Senator Jose Peralta, who died unexpectedly at age 47.  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's office announced the tributes Friday.  They are Democrats, as was Peralta.  He died Wednesday night after being taken to a hospital.  Medical examiners haven't yet determined what caused his death.  His widow, Evelyn, said he'd been feeling ill and his condition suddenly worsened.
