Fire Ignites Propane Tanks in Cheektowaga Garage

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. - Firefighters were able to contain a garage fire on Lucid Drive that they say could have turned into something worse.

A number of our viewers posted messages on our Facebook page Sunday afternoon, saying they could see the smoke from the fire from I-90.

Multiple fire departments in Cheektowaga were called out to help put out the flames in a detached garage.

"We did have reports of a couple of explosions when we were in route, a couple while we were here," U-Crest Fire Chief David Passalugo told 2 on Your Side. "There were some propane tanks in the garage - two of them that definitely let go. There was a vehicle in the garage as well."

Firefighters say that no one was hurt and estimate $80,000 in damage.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
