Randolph Fire Department extinguishes house fire on North Main Street
RANDOLPH – Chief Ronald Cassford reports the Randolph Fire Department extinguished a fire at a two-family home on North Main Street this afternoon.
On Wednesday, October 19 at approximately 2:40 p.m., Randolph Fire was dispatched to 685 North Main St. for a house fire report. Upon arrival, crews observed smoke coming from the residence’s first floor accommodation.
Crews removed siding from the house in an attempt to hose down the affected area. They then went inside, opened the walls to find the source of the fire and put out the fire. The fire was brought under control within 20 minutes of crews arriving at the scene.
There was a resident at the house at the time of the fire who was able to escape safely on his own. No injuries were reported.
The three occupants of the first floor accommodation will be moved until repairs can be made. They are assisted by the American Red Cross.
Mutual aid was provided by the Holbrook and Brockton fire departments. Coverage of the station was provided by the Braintree and Weymouth Fire Services.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Randolph Fire Department, although the preliminary investigation indicates it was accidental.
