Several suspicious fires break out in Allentown area causing thousands of dollars worth of damage

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo fire investigators are trying to find out how several fires started in the Allentown area. A call for a garage fire came in around 6:45am Wednesday.

“It was totally fully involved when we got here,” said Stephen Keohane, a Buffalo Fire chief. “Because it’s in the back, there’s a close proximity to the houses around it and the fire got into two of the houses but we got on it quick and it could’ve been a heck of a lot worse.”

The fire caused more than $125,000 worth of damage. No one was hurt but the Red Cross is assisting one person who lived in one of the homes.

Fire investigators say the incident appears suspicious.
