Firefighters made quick work of two fires reported overnight in the city.

Members of the Niagara Falls Fire Department were called to 1967 Falls St. about 1:20 a.m. after a fire broke out on a second-floor stairwell.

Fire officials reported the fire was under control by 1:40 a.m. It caused about $10,000 damage to the home and $5,000 damage to its contents.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Three adults living in the home were assisted by the Red Cross.

About 2:50 a.m., firefighters were called to 1150 1/2 Whitney Ave. for a working fire.

Firefighters had that fire under control by 3:10 a.m.

The fire, limited to the second floor of the vacant home, caused about $5,000 damage.
