As the summer heat presses on here in Western New York, firefighters have been busy trying to battle various blazes in some historic locations across Buffalo.

The heat index will approach, or beat, 100 degree over the next couple of days and a job that is already tough is made even worse. However, the women and men of the local fire departments and companies are prepared and ready.

As people were still talking about the recent fire at The Old Pink, there was another blaze happening in the City of Buffalo this week.

Channel 4 in Buffalo reports that a major fire broke out in the Cobblestone District near downtown Buffalo.

As far as the heat and humidity are concerned, it is going to be another scorcher and tough for those who have to wear the turn out gear to fight these fires.
