EAST AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – A fire that started in the rear bedroom of a home on Sable Court West in East Amherst left the house with $300,000 in damages.

The blaze was extinguished around 30 minutes later, but the fire caused heavy damage. Thankfully, no one was home and there were no injuries.

The cause remains under investigation, but fire investigators believe it is electrical in nature. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
