The fire started on the first floor of the two-story building but quickly spread to the second floor, according to the Buffalo Fire Department.

A total of $40,000 damage was caused to the building and $10,000 to it's contents.

Red Cross has been notified to help 3 adults and 3 children that lived in the apartments.

Lamar Rivera told 2 On Your Side his daughter and her mother lived in the building. He went on to say he was lucky to he kept his daughter at his house last night.

"It makes me feel bad because if they, if it would've been up the stairs that would've been their only way out. So then I could've lost a family member. She could've lost her kids. Everybody in the building could've lost their kids," said Rivera.

Buffalo Police say they're investigating the cause of this fire and that it remains suspicious.
