Chief Graham

The call came in early last evening to report a fire at 10 Prune Street. The neighborhood streets there are narrow, and houses are close together. The Tully’s parking lot was right behind the house. That made it tight quarters to maneuver trucks and fight the fire. Unloading hoses quickly and getting them into place fast was difficult. City Fire Chief Josh Graham relayed that there was significant damage to the second story of the residence with smoke and water damage to the first floor; and the garage, where the fire started was a total loss. Chief Graham added that a neighboring house sustained some heat damage. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Click below for the comprehensive story from our news partner:

Louisiana Street Bridge cracks show the need for major repairs

New York State Bridges are in desperate need of repair and replacement. A Scripps News investigation found 537 bridges in the state have been rated in “poor” condition for a decade or more. This is the ninth most in the United States. That’s just a portion of the 14,000 bridges that have been listed in poor condition for at least 10 years across the United States, according to data from the Federal Highway Administration. Five bridges in the City of Buffalo are on the list, including the Louisiana Street Bridge over I-190. New York State invested more than $80 million on bridge replacement and rehabilitation in Western New York over the last five years, but still falls short in fixing all state bridges in disrepair. There are many more bridges in need of repair than money available to fix them, both at the federal and local levels. (File photo)

Silt found in time capsule

That 200-year-old West Point time capsule opened Monday turned out to be a bust. The small lead box found in May in the base of an 1829 monument was met with great fanfare. What could be in it: medals, money, musket balls? As it turned out, nothing but silt, according to the scientist who examined the box. But, he promised to sift the silt and look further to determine what if anything was in the box.
