Buffalo FD Fights Three Separate Fires | News
BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Firefighters were busy overnight after being called out to three major fires.
The Buffalo Fire Alarm Office tells 2 On Your Side the most serious fire of the night broke out around 3:34 a.m. at 132 Folger Street in South Buffalo.
Two adults and three children were able to escape the flames before the first floor of their home was consumed.
Fire officials said the fire was raised to two alarms because of the severity of the fire.
Damage to the home is estimated at $50,000 to the structure and $20,000 to the home's contents. A neighboring home was also damaged. Damages there are listed at $5,000 to the structure.
Another fire broke out while firefighters were bringing the fire on Folger Street under control. That fire was located at 110 Moreland Street in Lovejoy.
Division Chief Don McFeely tells 2 On Your Side's Jim Herr that a small fire on the home's rear porch did some minor damage to the occupied home.
Damage from that fire was estimated at $25,000.
Earlier in the night, around 2:17 a.m., fire crews responded to 157 Hagen Street in the City's Delavan-Bailey neighborhood. The fire appears to have started in the basement of that home and spread up a rear wall.
The home appears to be occupied, but no one was around when firefighters were working.
Damage to that home is estimated at $25,000.
All three fires are under investigation.
