A fire yesterday at 26 Minton Street in Buffalo, New York, with damage to exposures. The video above is from Don Murtha.  Here’s some of what WIVB-TV wrote about the fire:

Firefighters say they had a hard time getting through a burning home on Minton Street because of what was inside. They say the fire was fed by more oxygen by civilians, who broke a window, trying to help out. They remained on the scene for more than an hour, battling the stubborn flames.

Some firefighters suffered minor burns. The fire chief said at times, the debris was as high as firefighters’ waists and they had move items to get further into the home to fight the fire. No one was home at the time. Two dogs were rescued and are now at the animal shelter.
