Submitted by the Erie County District Attorney’s Office

Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announced the following on Wednesday: “Earlier this week, the Buffalo Fire Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) announced the completion of their on-site investigation into the fire that occurred earlier this month at 745 Main St., which resulted in the tragic death of Buffalo firefighter Jason Arno.

“While some of the results of the multiagency investigation have been turned over to our office, we are waiting for a final report from the ATF. We have been advised that the report will be completed within the next two months. As we await the final report, our office is currently reviewing other materials and evidence to determine if there was any criminal conduct related to the fire.

“The family and friends of Jason Arno, as well as his fellow Buffalo firefighters and first responders, remain in my thoughts and prayers as they continue to grieve during this difficult time.”
