Willian Renaldo, the commissioner of the Buffalo Fire Department, has confirmed that a father and his two daughters had perished in a significant house fire in Buffalo. The mother was admitted to ECMC, where it is believed she will recover.
House Fire breaks out overnight in Buffalo
Around 3:30 in the morning, a neighbor of the Huntington Avenue home reported seeing flames on the second level. Shoshone Park is only a few blocks away from this.
Anytime someone perishes in a fire, Renaldo noted, “it’s very difficult.” It’s quite challenging. Physical labor was required because the victims had to be taken down from the second floor and attic. That aspect was challenging. The crews did a wonderful job.
As firemen battled the flames, several nearby roadways were shut down.
Abby Fridmann of News 4 is on the scene live and reports that the Red Cross and Salvation Army are present.
We’re trying to find out additional information regarding the fire’s origin.
