BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – Buffalo firefighters rushed to Hertel Avenue near Starin early Friday morning.
A 30-year-old woman has serious burns after she went back into the house because she thought someone was in there.
A 28-year-old man who also lives in the house ran back in to save her.
The fire started in the back of the first floor.
It’s a two family home, but only two people lived there.
When fire officials got on the scene, they worked to put out the blaze and stop it from spreading.
They were concerned because the house has a wooden frame.
The man suffered from smoke inhalation.
A firefighter has heat exhaustion and is possibly dehydrated.
All three people were taken to Erie County Medical Center.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
