BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Firefighters rushed to the scene of an evening fire near the city’s Old First Ward on Tuesday night.

When Buffalo fire crews hit the scene at 130 Vincennes Street, they worked with what little daylight they had, setting up various angles from which to fight the fire.

Described as a fully-involved structure fire, officials say nobody was home at the time the flames sparked, although at least two people were affected.

When the flames were extinguished, crews reported roughly $70,000 in damage to the structure and $20,000 in damage to the contents of the home.
