Massive flames were rolling out of a downtown Buffalo building, overnight Wednesday.

Fire was reported at the corner of Michigan and Sycamore about 3:00 a.m.

When crews arrived, they almost immediately called for additional help.  A second alarm was called, meaning nearly 60 firefighters and crew members were at the scene.

The front part of the building was seen falling as firefighters were standing below.

The building itself has also collapsed in on itself.

It's unclear if anyone was inside the building when fire started, though a Google street view shows the building was boarded up.

It's unclear how the fire started or if anyone was hurt.
