TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Fire investigators are working to learn what started a fire at an apartment home in Tonawanda.

Crews were called out to the 200 Block of Main Street around 11 p.m. Friday. A News 4 Viewer sent us a photo showing flames coming from the roof.

The fire started in the upper apartment. The father and two kids who live upstairs weren’t home at the time. The couple that lives downstairs got out safely. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
