Building owner says space heater may have caused Niagara County fire

CAMBRIA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A barn that also acted as a garage in Niagara County was destroyed after a fire early Monday morning.

A neighbor in the Town of Cambria reported the Baer Road fire around 3 a.m. Pekin and Sanborn Fire companies were able to extinguish the fire, but the building and its contents were a total loss.

The owner of the building says a space heater provided heat to seven chickens there and could have been the cause of the fire.

The official cause remains under investigation by Niagara County Cause and Origin. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
