Fire destroys home on the West Side

BUFFALO, NY - Several firefighters are recovering after battling an intense house fire on the West Side. Fire officials say a heavy fire broke out in a home on 14th Street Sunday afternoon and quickly spread to the second floor and attic.

Everyone inside managed to get out safely but several firefighters suffered minor injuries.

"We have a couple minor injuries," said Buffalo Fire Department Division Chief Michael Biasillo. "I'm not sure the extent of them yet. A couple guys went to the hospital to have them looked at. One guy was burned, I'm not sure how extensive it is. I'll find out when I go to the hospital." Firefighters say the home is considered a total loss and will likely be put up for emergency demolition.
