It was a busy day for Ithaca firefighters who responded to multiple fires in Danby and Ithaca Friday.

Crews had just finished putting out the flames at a home on Slaterville Road when they received a call around 3 p.m. of smoke and flames coming from 113 West Buffalo Street in the City of Ithaca.

Firefighters located the fire, which was contained to the second floor and caused heavy damage there. The blaze was extinguished in under 30 minutes.

No one was injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Earlier in the day, the Ithaca Fire Department assisted at a house fire in Danby.
