Posted at 8:12 AM, Oct 01, 2018

The Red Cross is assisting residents of two houses after their homes and a third, vacant house were severely damaged by a fire overnight Monday.

Dunkirk firefighters were first called to an occupied house on Lakeshore Drive East around 11 p.m. Sunday. When they arrived, they found the fire had already extended to another occupied house on the same street, and an unoccupied house on Beagle Street.

Firefighters from Fredonia and the East Town of Dunkirk Fire Department were called in to help. Firefighters put multiple water streams on the fire. The scene was clear shortly before 3 a.m.

No one was injured in the fire. It's unclear whether the homes will be salvaged, and no damage estimate was provided by the department.
