BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Three people were killed in a house fire at 194 Huntington Avenue early Monday morning, according to City of Buffalo officials.

Investigators said flames broke out on the second floor of the home and spread to the attic around 3:30 a.m. Firefighters rescued four people from the home and three were pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials said crews attempted life-saving measures on the father, 53-year-old Jonathan Daniels, and daughters, 27-year-old Jordan Daniels and 23-year-old Jensen Daniels but they were pronounced dead. A dog also died in the fire. The mother, 53-year-old Janessa Daniels, was taken to ECMC to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Officials said multiple firefighters were also injured, but none of the injuries appeared serious.

Damage to the home is estimated at $230,000. A nearby home suffered $55,000 in exposure damage. Investigators said they are still working to find out what caused the fire, but fireworks are not believed to be a factor at this time.
