HOPKINTON — Chief William Miller reports that the Hopkinton Fire Department and its mutual aid partners extinguished a 3-alarm fire in a multi-family home on Mayhew Street Tuesday afternoon.
Hopkinton Fire responded to a 9-1-1 call at approximately 12:30 p.m. for the report of a fire in a multi-family home at 10 Mayhew Street.
Upon arrival firefighters found heavy fire showing from a second floor porch on the left side of the home, with flames extending into the second floor and attic.
A second and third alarm were struck because an aggressive attack on the fire required additional manpower to open up walls and ceilings and get at the deep-seated flames.
The fire was under control at approximately 1:30 p.m. There were no reported injuries.
The cause is under investigation by the Hopkinton Fire Department and the State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.
Six residents of the home were displaced.The American Red Cross of Massachusetts is providing support to those displaced.
Firefighters from Upton, Ashland, Southborough, Westborough, Milford, Hopedale and Framingham provided mutual aid at the scene, and firefighters from Northborough covered Hopkinton stations.
“I’d like to thank all of our mutual aid partners for their vital assistance, and all of the firefighters who responded for a job well done,” said Chief Miller. “This was a tough fire and everyone did an outstanding job.”
