BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo fire investigators have arrested someone in connection with Saturday’s massive apartment fire on Lafayette Avenue.
News 4 is working to find out more about who the suspect is and how investigators believe the fire was started.
The 3-alarm fire displaced 90 residents of the building at 117 Lafayette Avenue, near Herkimer Street. The fire caused 1.5 million dollars in damage to the structure and $450,000 damage to the contents. No one was hurt.
