Industrial fires put strain on fire department
By Joyce Kryszak
Buffalo, NY – The Buffalo Fire Department has responded to two multiple-alarm industrial fires in less than a week.
The cause of both fires is still under investigation, and the price tags are still being tallied. But costs are expected to be "very, very large," according to Fire Commissioner Garnell Whitfield.
WBFO's Joyce Kryszak caught up with Whitfield on his cell phone. He said the department is being stretched near to the limit.
