Two Displaced as Bedford Fire Department Battles Kitchen Fire
BEDFORD – Fire Chief David Grunes reports that the Bedford Fire Department battled a Friday afternoon kitchen fire that left one family temporarily displaced.
Firefighters responded to 39 Fayette Road at 4:20 p.m. Friday for a report of a fire that broke out in the kitchen while residents were cooking.
Units arrived minutes later and were able to knock the blaze down after about 15 minutes. There was significant damage to the kitchen, and fire officials estimated the damage at $60,000.
Two residents living in the room are staying with residents, as the home is currently uninhabitable.
Fire crews from Lexington and the Hanscom Air Force Base Fire Department assisted Bedford Fire.
