Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - Buffalo firefighters spent hours overnight into Monday morning battling a three-structure blaze on N. Division Street.

Officials say one firefighter was injured during the blaze. The extent of the injuries are unknown, but authorities say the firefighter was taken to ECMC by ambulance.

The fire began at 737 N. Division Street at about 1:30 on Monday morning, quickly spreading to the homes on either side.

The home where the fire began was vacant. However, both houses that it spread to had people inside.

Crews called the American Red Cross to help at least one person after the blaze.

Officials say no home occupants sustained any injuries.

Investigators estimate the blaze caused at least $180-thousand in damage between the three homes burned.
