Attleboro Fire Department Responds to House Fire
ATTLEBORO — Chief Scott T. Lachance reports that the Attleboro Fire Department responded to a house fire Thursday morning.
At approximately 11 a.m. yesterday, Attleboro firefighters were dispatched to 91 Wamsutta Road for a report of a fire. Upon arrival, first responders observed an active fire and initiated an attack to extinguish it.
Attleboro firefighters worked for approximately an hour, with mutual aid on scene from the Seekonk and Pawtucket Fire Departments to extinguish the fire before locating and eliminating hot spots. A North Attleboro Fire Department ambulance also responded to the scene.
Two firefighters were transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.
Nobody was home at the time of the fire, and the American Red Cross is working with residents to find alternative housing, as the house was damaged too severely to be occupied.
The fire is not believed to be suspicious, but the cause remains under investigation by the Attleboro Fire Department.
