A firefighter was hurt working an overnight fire, on North Park Avenue, overnight Monday. We're told the firefighter suffered a back injury and was sent to Buffalo General Hospital. The fire started about 1:40 a.m. Monday. The house was occupied. The Red Cross was called to help three adults. Firefighters say the fire started on the second floor and spread into the attic. It caused about $225,000 in damage. That was the third fire in four hours that this crew would battle in cold temperatures. Firefighters didn't have a chance to "thaw out" according to the fire chief at the scene, before being called here. Firefighters also worked a fire at 372 Humboldt about 11:00 p.m. Sunday. Crews say fire started on the first floor and spread throughout the house.
