A morning blaze at a home in Cheektowaga took the life of an elderly man, Saturday.
Fire crews arrived at the Pine Circle around 8 o'clock, to find the house fully engulfed in flames.
Neighboring residents were evacuated, as heavy equipment blocked nearby streets. Fire fighters found the man's body once they were able to subdue the intense heat around 11 a.m.
The man's identity has yet to be released.
