| MONDAY BLAZE – The Greenfield Fire Department, along with mutual aid from the Sharon Fire Department, managed to extinguish this house fire at 100 Pecan St. within two hours early Monday morning. |
The Greenfield Fire Department had a busy weekend as two homes caught fire within 24 hours of one another.
GFD Chief Bob Dudley reported his department was called to the scene of Meridian Road around 9 a.m. Sunday morning.
When they arrived on the scene, Dudley said they found two separate fires in the living room of the home. The damage sustained to the home was estimated at $7,500.
The cause of the blaze is unknown and the incident has been ruled suspicious, according to Dudley. It is under investigation by the state fire marshal’s arson division.
The Pillowville Volunteer Fire Department provided mutual aid.
A second fire early Monday morning took approximately two hours to extinguish.
Dudley said the call came in to the department around 1 a.m. on Monday.
When firefighters arrived at the scene of 100 Pecan St, the home was 40 percent involved with the origin of the fire in the kitchen of the home. Within two hours, the department managed to extinguish the fire.
The incident is still under investigation. The Sharon Fire Department provided mutual aid with a pumper truck and manpower.
“The departments did a great job with a quick attack on these fires. We give a big thank you to the Pillowville and Sharon fire departments for their help,” Dudley commented.
