BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Twin City Ambulance crew rescued a man from a fire Tuesday evening in the City of Buffalo.

The ambulance crew was returning from a Buffalo hospital just after 7:30 p.m. when they noticed smoke coming from the attic of a residence. The crew called to alert Buffalo Fire and Twin City Dispatch about the fire while checking the outside of the residence for signs of someone inside.

While knocking on doors and searching the exterior of the house, the crew saw that there was a light on inside and entered a side door, assisting a man out of the residence. He was uninjured.

Buffalo firefighters then responded to the scene to put out the fire. The Twin City Ambulance crew attended to the resident until another ambulance arrived.
