BUFFALO, N.Y. — More than 100 suburban firefighters were assisted by their counterparts from Buffalo Niagara International Airport on Monday afternoon in cooling a large industrial fire at Twin Village Recycling on Broadway in Depew.

The airport firefighters brought their fire-retardant foam to the scene of the hotly burning blaze that was apparently touched off just before 4 p.m. by an accident with a worker's torch and consumed a pair of metal buildings at the company's 4153 Broadway facility.
