BUFFALO, NY ( WKBW ) Buffalo Firefighters rushed to Chandler Street in the Black Rock section of Buffalo Wednesday morning just before 6a.m. to battle a blaze at the Niagara Lubricant industrial complex there.

The fire quickly spread to four alarms, with a potentially toxic mix of chemicals and smoke coming from the building.

The Erie County Fire Wire, a website dedicated to the brave men and women who fight fires and keep us safe, created a photo gallery of images from this massive blaze.

Read more about the mission of the group, as re-printed from their website,

This Erie County Fire Wire is intended for those individuals who are firefighters or EMS providers, both paid and volunteer, and those interested in the Emergency Services field. This is a non-profit web site that is meant to function as a training and resource guide for everyone.

This site will provide a news board listing calls such as working fires, mva's, hazmat, and airport alerts. I will also post any general news and training dates having to do with fire/ems. If we receive an alert from anyone through this site I will post it as soon as I can. We provide an alert form, a page with those departments in Erie County that are on the internet, links to other fire related sites, a guest book, live dispatch, audio files, county softball schedules, blog, & photos pages of apparatus, incidents, parades,& training.

Erie County is a county with many departments within, 94 volunteer
departments in all plus the City of Buffalo Fire Department & the Buffalo Niagara International Airport A.R.F.F. . Any help that fellow firefighters can give towards the success of this web site will be greatly appreciated. Help would include sending me an e-mail with any incident they know of, photos of incidents, and photos of the departments in Erie County.

I hope everyone enjoys this site and gets the most out of it.
