Family displaced in Kenmore fire

KENMORE, NY (Erie County Fire Blotter) – A barbeque turned tragic Thursday when a fire broke out and consumed the home at 22 Allegany Avenue.

Kenmore Fire Captain Felix Coniglio says the fire appears to have started at the gas grill and then it extended into the house.

The fire from the grill melted the gas line to the propane tank causing the fire to take off into the structure and up the exterior wall on the home’s number 3 side.

All floors were consumed by the blaze.

Kenmore was assisted at the scene by Kenilworth, Brighton, Sheridan Park and Ellwood.

A damage estimate has not been released.
