BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Twelve people are homeless after a fire on Jersey Street in Buffalo. Firefighters got the call around 2:30 a.m. at an old Victorian home. The flames quickly spread next door.
The homes are broken up into apartments and extra companies were called in to fight the fire.
Buffalo Fire Department Division Chief Don McFeely said, “Both buildings got a good hold of the fire and these buildings are all old and cut up. Beautiful buildings, but they have a lot of rooms. A lot of areas the fire gets.”
Luckily everyone made it out okay. McFeely said, “Luckily all the occupants of both houses got out alright, I think one guy got a little smoke, but he was treated at the scene.”
Investigators are working to figure out what caused the fire.
