TOWN OF TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A 6 a.m. Town of Tonawanda fire was extinguished Monday morning and left an icy mess.
The fire happened at a two-family home on Roswell Ave. Similar to another Monday fire in Ontario County, frozen hydrants gave fire crews trouble at the scene.
Despite this, the fire was brought under control about one half hour after crews arrived.
A clothing iron that was left on was determined to be the cause of the fire.
Only one person was inside the home at the time and no one was hurt. The Red Cross is assisting several families who were displaced by the fire.
Overall, the fire caused at least $100,000 in damage. Investigators were at the scene.
