BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Monday morning, there was a dangerous and fiery case of deja vu for Buffalo's bravest.
On top of the heat and humidity, for the second time in a week, firefighters found themselves facing a fierce industrial fire where water wouldn't do the job. It was a building they're pretty familiar with.
This is the second fire in a couple months on Dorothy Street at Goldmnn Titanium. Firefighters have the fire contained but it took them a few hours to knock it down because of the fire inside the building.
Just after 7:30 a.m. fire erupted outside of one of the Goldman Titanium buildings on Dorothy Street.
Employee Ken Klemp said, "A couple of my buddies, Danny, ran in, told us to call 911. Started feeling the heat coming in and then, just ran out of the building."
The fire was burning brightly because of the metal, and neighbors watched as flames shot into the air.
Jeffrey Moore works next to the building and said, "Forty, fifty feet high. There was sparks coming out and landing in the immediate area, out in the street."
This is the seventh fire on record that took place at Goldman Titanium since 1994. Neighbors have had enough.
Kimberli Moore lives next to the building and said, "It's just ridiculous, and before I moved and bought my home over here, the people over here were complaining about this building being shut down and they just won't shut it down."
Firefighters struggled for more than two hours to try and contain the blaze.
Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield said, "You can't use water on it. Titanium reacts violently with water so it makes it a little difficult. We had to use foam on it, on the fire, and we used all of our foam supply at the last four-alarm fire. We're just in the process of ordering more foam so we had to get the vendor out here this morning."
No one inside the building was hurt and one firefighter suffered a minor injury.
