BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Early Wednesday morning, crews responded to a massive fire at Metcalfe St. near Clinton.

Damage to the building is estimated at $500,000. A detached building that was part of the complex suffered $300,000 in exposure damage.

No one was injured. Crews are still investigating what started the fire.
