County reviews Hopkins Road reconstruction


AMHERST, NY - The rough winter took a toll on a lot of roads in Erie County. Now, one of the big repair jobs is done.

County Executive Mark Poloncarz was in Amherst Friday to take a look at the just-finished reconstruction project along Hopkins Road. It wasn't just patchwork, either. The $2.88 million project stabilized a rough part of the road between Smith and Tonawanda Creek.

That stretch has been reduced to one lane for years.

Poloncarz says the county may have to do something similar on a stretch of Tonawanda Creek Road in Clarence.

Two-alarm fire at Carmine's Restaurant


AMHERST, NY - Fire broke out at Carmine's Restaurant on Transit Road near Sheridan Drive at about 1 p.m. Saturday.

Two alarms were put out on the call and least five companies responded as flames quickly engulfed the one-story structure.

Firefighters told 2 On Your Side's Scott Levin that it started with a grease fire in the kitchen which quickly moved to the roof. There are no reports of injuries.

It appears the building will be a total loss.

Carmine's is one of the restaurants serving food at this weekend's Taste of Buffalo. Workers there told us they would keep serving while their supplies last.
