9 people displaced by fire at housing complex

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Red Cross is helping five adults and three children after a fire at LaSalle Courts Sunday night.

Fire crews were called to Grove St. around 9:30 p.m. Officials on scene told News 4 the fire started in the back of the building, affecting four units and spreading into the attic.

“We are looking into a report of somebody using a barbecue grill and then throwing the briquettes next to the building,” said Chief Michael Tuberdyke.

No one was hurt. There was about $200,000 dollars in damage.

BMHA told News 4 they are working with the families displaced by the fire.
