Video from Donald Kilianski (wildfirevideosWNY) of a house fire this morning in Buffalo, New York.
Firefighters spent hours fighting a stubborn fire in a 2½-story wood house at 384 Herman St., just east of the Kensington Expressway, between East North and Best streets.
A few minutes after firefighters responded to a 9:09 a.m. call, fire officials ordered an evacuation of firefighters and conducted a quick head count, or “accountability report,” from each of the ladder and engine companies at the scene. All personnel were accounted for.
Firefighters spent hours at the scene, battling heavy smoke and fire conditions on the first two floors and concerned about the possible toppling of a chimney in that home. The house was destroyed in the fire, and authorities have called for an emergency demolition.
