BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Buffalo firefighters donned air masks to fight a two-alarm fire involving noxious fumes on Dorothy Street in the Clinton-Babcock neighborhood.
The fire started at Goldman Titanium on Dorothy Street, a company that purchases and processes titanium scrap metal, which can be highly volatile under fire. Fire crews used soda ash instead of water to fight the flames. Several boxes of titanium were on fire.
The fire is under control, and there is no health concern to residents. Firefighters wore white Tyvek suits, not because of the burning titanium, but because of the soda ash they used to put out the flames. They wear the suits so they do not contaminate the firetrucks.
Firefighters used oxygen masks as a precaution. There were no injuries. Firetrucks will have to be hosed down before they go out of service.
