Buffalo Fire Department battles two overnight fires

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Buffalo Fire Department was busy overnight, fighting two fires just blocks from each other.

Crews responded to 115 Clare Street just before 5:30 a.m. Firefighters battled the flames for nearly a half hour before getting the fire under control.

A family of four was able to get out of the home safely but, has been displaced. No injuries have been reported.

The Clare Street fire broke out less than an hour after firefighters wrapped up on the scene of another fire just blocks away.

Crews responded to 43 Jones Street just before 3 a.m. The battalion fire chief told News 4 the cold temperatures made it more difficult to fight the two-alarm fire. Frozen hoses and slippery, cold conditions played a role in slowing down firefighters.

The causes of both fires are under investigation.
