FALCONER, N.Y. (WBEN) - Fire crews battled a large blaze on West Main Street in Falconer for most of the day on Wednesday.

Channel 7 reports the fire is currently under control but a portion of West Main Street will remain closed Wednesday night and even for the next few days because the building could collapse. Route 394 is closed in both directions between Work Street and Phetteplace Street.

The fire spread to four buildings that housed multiple businesses and apartments. There were no major injuries reported.

The American Red Cross provided assistance to 20 people from 9 families who are now homeless but that number could change.

An investigation into what started the fire continues.
