Excerpts from the Herald-News.com:

Lockport firefighters responded about 1:50 a.m. Monday to 1139 E. Ninth St. for a reported structure fire. Lockport Animal Hospital used to occupy the building, but the facility is currently being used for its records storage only. When crews arrived, they found heavy fire coming from the small building’s attic. Downed power lines in the immediate area made it difficult to access all sides of the building.

Personnel remained on the scene for several hours, and one firefighter injured his hand. The fire’s cause remained under investigation Monday.
