A fire reported Monday around 8 a.m. at 704 W. Buffalo Street damaged several businesses, according to Dan Tier, assistant fire chief of the Ithaca Fire Department.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Tier said. No injuries were reported.“I wasn’t able to get in today because they took the power off. It appears my office was smoke-damaged,” said Richard Carlton, owner of Ridley Printing Company, one of the businesses affected by the fire.

According to Carlton, the fire seems to have started in Kalzonies, a pizza restaurant at the location of the fire. Representatives from the restaurant could not be reached for comment Monday.
