BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Buffalo firefighters tackled a tricky blaze at ADM Milling on Ganson Street. The two-alarm fire broke out around 4:30 p.m. on Monday.
Buffalo Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield said, "We got a call that a piece of machinery was on fire on the 10th floor. Upon arrival, there was heavy black smoke, flames up there. We have crews up there. What it is is a dust collector, one of the hoppers up there. So it took a lot of time for us to be able to access that and get water on that."
ADM Milling processes flour. The grain is sent through multiple hoppers during processing, and it is one of the hoppers that caught fire.
The blaze was tricky and required extra caution.
"We have the potential for dust explosions. It's a high-rise situation here. So it's a little bit different for us, but our guys are doing a great job," Whitfield said.
No injuries were reported. The fire was under control after about an hour and a half. Fire officials say the machinery suffered $300,000 damage, and there was $100,000 water and structure damage.
The cause remains under investigation.
