Building Tenant Insists Third Person was Trapped

BUFFALO, NY (WBFO) - The search for a cause in Monday's Genesee Street fire that killed two firefighters continues. A tenant of the building insists there was a person trapped in the basement when the fire broke out. WBFO'S Eileen Buckley returned to the fire scene Tuesday and files this report.

Fire commissioner Michael Lombardo said a cadaver dog was brought in Tuesday to search for a possible third civilian victim, but did not find a body.

Both funerals will be held Friday at St. Joseph Cathedral on Franklin Street in downtown Buffalo. Lt. Charles McCarthy's will be held at 9:30 a.m. followed by firefighter Jonathan Croom's at 1 p.m.
