Firefighters Battle Late Night Blaze on Norfolk Street

The fire caused more than $100,000 in damage.

Just before 11 p.m. last night the Holliston Fire Department received a call for a fire on Norfolk Street.

According to reports from Chief Cassidy, smoke and flames were visible from the rear of the house when firefighters responded, but all of the residents had made it out of the house safely.

"Firefighters advanced hoselines through the front door, and made an aggressive attack from the interior. Crews also used saws to cut ventilation openings in the roof, and extinguished visible flames with a hoseline from the outside of the building," Cassidy's report said.

The fire was declared under control at 12:21 a.m. and firefighters cleared the scene just after 1 a.m.

"The cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage is estimated to be in excess of $100,000. One firefighter sustained minor injuries on scene. All pets were located and safely returns to their owners," Cassidy said.
