FRAMINGHAM – Firefighters received a 9-1-1 call after midnight for a house fire.
Firefighters found heavy fire in the garage of 47 Agnes Drive when they arrived on scene, said Framingham Assistant Fire Chief Michael Dutcher.
The call came in at 12:20 a.m. on August 27.
Engine 7, Engine 1, Rescue 1, Tower 1, Car 2 & Engine 2 as rapid intervention team (RIT) along with Ambulance 4 and Ambulance 5, all responded to the fire, said the Chief.
“Engine 7 made a quick knockdown” of the garage fire,” said Chief Dutcher. “Tower 1 vented the roof. Rescue 1 searched for occupants, Engine 1 was water supply,” said Chief Dutcher. “It was a good stop by group 4.”
The home was “unoccupied,” said Chief Dutcher. He said it was “recently purchased, and renovation work was being done.”
There were no injuries.
“Thanks to our mutual aid partners-Ashland, Wayland, Sudbury, for providing coverage while Framingham Fire companies were busy,” said Chief Dutcher. He also thanked Framingham Police and Framingham DPW for their assistance early this morning.
The cause of the fire is “under investigation” but appears “accidental,” said Chief Dutcher.
He estimated damage was well over $100,000, said Chief Dutcher.
