BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Investigators are working to pinpoint the cause of a destructive early morning fire in Buffalo.

Crews were called to the scene at 225 Box Avenue around 5:40 am on Sunday. It's believed the fire started on a lower floor, with damage estimated at $50,000.

At this point, no injuries have been reported.

Box Avenue has been a busy place for law enforcement over the past few months. In September, human remains were found in a fire pit on the 200 block of Box Avenue. So far, those remains have not been identified. In October, the body of Kevin Emmons was found inside a home, also in the 200 block of Box Avenue. Police say the 35-year-old man was shot to death.
