$155,000 damage estimated in Arthur Street blaze

Buffalo firefighters spent more than 30 minutes battling a blaze at a 2 1/2-story, wood-frame house at 19 Arthur St., near Niagara Street, in Black Rock, before it was brought under control Tuesday morning. The fire started on the second floor of the house and spread to the attic, causing $155,000 in damage. No injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation. Soon after arriving at about 9 a.m., firefighters succeeded in dousing the blaze on the second floor, but reaching the attic proved difficult, causing a delay.
