BUFFALO, N.Y. — Firefighters were called to an apartment fire in North Buffalo Monday afternoon.
The call came around 1:30 p.m. for a fire at Parkview Garden Apartments in the 200 block of Parkside Avenue, across from the Buffalo Zoo.
Firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control. Two units had fire damage.
Battalion Fire Chief David Mann says there were no injuries and no one was in the apartment units at the time of the fire.
Mann says they did call a second alarm for additional firefighters because they wanted extra help to handle conditions and potential evacuations in the highly occupied building.
Four people were being sheltered by the Red Cross on Monday evening.
Investigators were on the scene much of Monday afternoon but no cause has been released as yet.
It's estimated there were $450,000 dollars in damage.
