VIDEO: A spokesperson for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed to 2 On Your Side Wednesday night that a national response team (NRT) has been deployed to Buffalo. WGRZ was told by the spokesperson that the NRT will support various Buffalo agencies in the investigation of the fire. A 37-year-old Buffalo firefighter died during the response to the 4-alarm fire. The firefighter is a 3-year veteran and was a member of Engine 2. During a press conference earlier Wednesday afternoon, Buffalo Fire Commissioner William Renaldo said they believe construction crews were working at DC Theatricks, located at 745 Main St., early Wednesday morning. "Workers working on the exterior of the building with some torches, workouts, a mortar and some brick, and we think that may have been the cause because of the origin of the fire," Renaldo said.
