BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Police have released the identity of the child killed in a fire early Sunday morning.
The flames started around 7 a.m. at a multi-family home at 1400 Fillmore Avenue on Buffalo's East Side.
Firefighters tell 2 On Your Side that a large family was home at the time. Three adults and three children made it out okay. But they realized a 7-year-old, Alexavier Torres-Santiago was still in the house.
When firefighters got on scene, the building was fully involved in flames. Crews attempted to go inside, but the fire was too bad, and they had to pull back.
Fire officials later confirmed the Alexavier died.
Raw video from the scene is in the video player above, including an interview with Buffalo Fire Department Commissioner Garnell Whitfield.
