There were two house fires in two different sections of Buffalo, New York early this morning 16 minutes apart. The first, in the video above, was at 819 E. Eagle Street at 4:22 AM. The fire heavily damaged a vacant home.

The second fire was at 56 Buffum Street at 4:38 AM. That video is in two parts.


It happened shortly after 4:30am Monday. Firefighters say a woman and two teenagers live in the upper floor apartment. A man and woman live on the ground floor. Everyone got out safely.

“I went to bed because I had to be to work at six,” said Joann Wiedricht, who lives in the bottom floor on the house. “And he [her husband] said I smell smoke and he jumped out of bed and all the sudden they’re banging on my door and said get out, get out, get out.”

Firefighters intially had trouble with water pressure in the area which delayed putting the blaze out.
