Flames spark at building under demolition


BUFFALO, N.Y.(WIVB)- Multiple fire companies were called to a blaze on East Delevan Avenue Friday morning. Flames sparked at a two-story industrial building.

A 500-gallon drum of flammable liquid caught on fire, but the drum was not full so only remaining residue caught fire.  Two fire alarm calls went out, as a precaution, to ensure back up if necessary for firefighters.

There are no reports of any injuries. The fire caused $20,000 damage to the building. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
