Crews battle vacant house fire in Niagara Falls

Posted at 2:12 PM, Apr 01, 2018

Niagara Falls firefighters worked to knock down a fire at a vacant house at 1325 Willow Ave. Sunday morning.

According to Niagara Falls Fire Chief Thomas Colangelo, when firefighters arrived on the scene around 8:30 they were tasked with a large-volume fire with flames coming out of every window in the house.

It was originally thought that someone lived at the residence but after investigation they determined the property was vacant.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire and keep it from spreading to the neighboring residences, although those residences sustained heat damage according to Chief Colangelo.

There are no cost estimates as of now, it is still an ongoing investigation. 

We will have more information as it becomes available.
