FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — A firefighter was injured Thursday morning battling a three-story fire in Fall River.
Crews arrived on 3rd Street at about 10:30 a.m. to find heavy flames and smoke pouring from the triple-decker.
All residents of the home were able to escape to safety, according to Fall River Fire Chief John Lynch.
It took crews about an hour to knock down the fire. Lynch said all three floors are burnt out and the roof collapsed.
“We had a combination of vinyl siding and asphalt shingles so usually that makes the fire go up the house pretty quick,” said Fall River Fire Captain Jason Poissant.
One firefighter was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. According to the fire department, he suffered from burns on his neck.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
The American Red Cross arrived on scene to assist the residents of the home.
