CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — A massive fire occurred at A & F Wholesale Insulation Sunday afternoon, as Cheektowaga Public Safety dispatchers received a call from a resident around 4:22 p.m. reporting smoke and flames.

Firefighters from the Forks and Doyle districts reported flames through the roof of the business, which sells insulation materials. The fire blazed through the building for an hour despite early suppression efforts. One large building on the lot was deemed a total loss. The other three buildings were not reached by fire.
