The Buffalo Fire Department attended to an early morning bedroom fire in the city's Hamlin Park neighborhood.

The fire broke out just after 4 a.m. Monday at 345 Florida Street.

Division Chief Michael Biasillo told 7 Eyewitness News that his crews encountered a second floor bedroom fire in the rear of the house.

“We had pretty heavy smoke conditions on the second floor.  We had fire in the rear in a bedroom on the second floor and it extended up and into the attic. We got the roof opened right away, got it vented. Our crews did a good job," said Biasillo.

The resident was able to make it out of the fire on his own.  No one was hurt.

Damages were estimated to be $60,000.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
