Woman returns from walk, finds house fire

HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – Flames destroyed a home in the Village of Hamburg Tuesday morning. A woman and her son lived at the home on Windover. No one was injured.

The mother told News 4 she took her dog for a walk Tuesday, and returned home to find the home on fire. There is no word on what caused the flames to spark.

Village of Hamburg Fire Department Chief Tim Moses said, “I made the decision to go defensive. With the cold weather, it’s taking a beating on our guys. So at this point, we just put the ladder up and put water on the fire.”
