Six people displaced after fire on Kent Street

A fire displaced six people from their home Saturday morning in the city’s Broadway-Fillmore neighborhood.

Buffalo firefighters were called to 40 Kent Street just after midnight to extinguish the fire that ravaged the 1-1/2 story house, officials said.

The fire, which started on the first floor and extended to the attic, caused $45,000 damage to the building and $15,000 to its contents, officials said.

The cause is under investigation. No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross was called to assist two adults and four children.
