FRAMINGHAM – Firefighters responded to a report of a building fire early Saturday morning, February 15.

The fire was reported at 6;40 a.m. at 9 Lexington Street, said acting Frramingham Fire Chief Michael Dutcher.

“Alarms directly tied to Framingham fire alarm notified” the department, he explained.

Engine 5, Engine 3, ladder 3, rescue 1 and command 2 responded to the fire.

On arrival, firefighters discovered “light smoke conditions,” said Chief Dutcher.

Firefighters traced the smoke coming from one of the rooms, the chief said.

Firefighters found a 1-foot by 1-foot area of carpet on fire, said Chief Dutcher.

Firefighters “quickly extinguished with a water extinguisher,” said the chief.

The “cause was careless disposal of smoking materials,” said Cheif Dutcher.

No firefighters were injured.

No residents were displaced, said the chief.
