Buffalo, N.Y. (WIVB) — A fire Friday night that caused about $15,000 in damage to a building in Buffalo likely started because of a light that fell on combustible material, according to a fire chief.
People near the building on 700 Michigan Avenue noticed flames and called for help.
First responders found the fire on the roof and put it out quickly.
“We had to open it up, similar to what to do if you got your tooth done and you have a cavity, where it was burning we had to dig around, dig in there and make sure it wasn’t any deep seeded smoldering in there and get it all out,” said Peter Kertzie, Division Chief, Buffalo Fire Department.
There are no reports of injuries.
