Two People Hospitalized In Pittsfield Structure Fire On Sunday
Two people were taken to the hospital after their home caught fire on Sunday morning, according to a media statement from the Pittsfield Fire Department. They received a report of a structure fire on Turner Avenue at approximately 3 a.m.
When firefighters arrived, they found the rear porch and exterior wall on fire and used a water supply plus ventilation to extinguish the blaze.
Smoke detectors woke up and alerted the five people inside the home, two adults and three children, of the blaze. The two adult owner/occupants were transported to Berkshire Medical Center where they were treated for smoke inhalation.
The estimated damage caused by the fire was about $5,000, however, the house was deemed habitable and turned over to a responsible party. Along with the occupants of the house, no firefighters were injured either during the incident.
