Main-Transit Firefighters respond to Structure Fire in Amherst

Main-Transit Fire Department of Amherst, NY responded to a report of a garage fire at 110 Sixth Ave at 3:19 PM on January 23, 2020. Firefighters arrived on location in under six minutes and found fire conditions in the garage of the residence. Firefighters immediately began extinguishing the fire and performed overhaul and salvage operations after the fire had been extinguished.
Thirty four Main-Transit Firefighters and firefighters from Williamsville Fire Department and Harris Hill Volunteer Fire Department responded with five engines, one aerial ladder, and one heavy rescue. Fire Chief Daniel Hooper commanded the response. The incident is still under investigation through the Amherst Fire Inspectors office and the Amherst Police Department. There were no reports of injury or illness from civilians or firefighters on the scene.
It should be noted that the homeowner closing their man door between the garage and residence after discovering the fire assisted in containing the fire and minimizing the damage to the rest of the residence.
Main-Transit Fire Department was assisted by the Amherst Police, Town of Amherst Fire and Building inspectors, the Amherst Central Fire Alarm Office, Twin City Ambulance and Town of Amherst Emergency Services office.
Any further questions may be answered by calling Fire Chief Daniel Hooper at 716-632-9710 ext 111. Thank you in advance.

Firematically yours,
Daniel Hooper
