Three people escape fire at two-family home


BROCTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Investigators in Chautauqua County are working to figure how a house in Brocton caught fire. At least three people were inside when the fire started at the two-family home on Highland Avenue, Sunday. Crews from several different fire companies helped make sure everyone made it out safely.

Brocton Fire Chief Jim Rizzo said, “This was a quick moving fire, upon arrival, really, really heavy smoke. The guys had a quick response here from surrounding departments, put a quick attack on the fire, and did a great job, put it out in good time.”

Investigators are still working to determine how much damage the fire caused. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
