Falls man dies in early morning blaze

Niagara Gazette — A fire at a home in the 500 block of 26th Street claimed the life of a Niagara Falls man early Tuesday.

City firefighters were called out into sub-zero conditions at around 3:30 a.m. following a report of a blaze inside a 1 1/2 story building at 536 26th St. 

The male victim, who has not yet been identified, was a resident of an upper apartment in the building, according to Falls fire officials. A report from the fire department indicated that members of a family living in the lower apartment inside the building escaped harm and were being assisted by the American Red Cross. 

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation. The Niagara Gazette will provide additional information as it is made available.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
