Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) Fire crews were called to the scene of a fire just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night on Hopkins Street in South Buffalo.

Officials on scene said the flames were quick to spread throughout the house and were too intense to fight from inside the home. Crews had to approach the blaze from outside and from above using the fire ladder.

Multiple people were inside the home when the flames broke out but they all managed to get out safely, according to officials on scene.

At this point the cause of the fire is under investigation and no injuries were reported.
