BUFFALO, NY - High winds made it difficult for firefighters to put out a fire on Buffalo's East Side Sunday afternoon.
Flames broke out inside an apartment on Fillmore Avenue around 1 p.m. A Buffalo fire chief told us they had to rescue several people, including one man who jumped out of a window.
A total of two people were taken to the hospital with injuries.
"The first arriving company … reported people hanging out of windows ... they were hanging out of a balcony. One guy did jump from the second floor, and three other people just walked down ladders."
Firefighters say nobody was inside the apartment where the fire originally broke out.
The cause is still under investigation. Damage is estimated at about $200,000.
