Thursday Night Fire in Lee Displaces 2
Two people were displaced on Thursday night after a fire broke out at a Church Street home in Lee.
According to the Lee Fire Department, they were dispatched to 130 Church Street just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday night to the "fully involved" fire. Fire Chief Ryan Brown said it was a team effort from start to finish.
"On arrival, Engine 2 struck the first alarm and went to work," Brown said. "They were assisted in rapidly knocking down the fire and searching the building by the crews from Engine 1 and Engine 7. Lee Engines 3 & 5, Ambulance Unit 1 and Lenox Truck 5 and Engine 6 filled out the box."
Brown also shouted out the towns of Great Barrington and Stockbridge for covering the rest of the area while the fire was being put out.
While the home was heavily damaged by the fire, nobody was injured. The State Fire Marshall's Office was called in to conduct an investigation, according to Brown. It is a dangerous job these folks do and Chief Brown was thoroughly impressed with the work that was put in.
"I am very proud of the work done (Thursday night) by the Lee Firefighters under the command of Deputy Chief North," Brown stated.
"Thanks to Lenox FD, GBFD, SFD, Lee Police and a great baby sitter."
