Buffalo Firefighters had their hands full Monday afternoon with a fire that destroyed a home on the city's east side.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — One Buffalo firefighter is being treated for burns on his ears and neck after battling a house fire on the city's east side this afternoon.

At least six people were home in one of the building's apartments, but everyone inside made it out safely.

The fire started on the second floor but quickly spread to the attic.  

Everyone inside got out OK. One firefighter had to go to the hospital to get checked out.

Damage is estimated at $250,000. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
