One Person Hurt In Von Nida Ave Fire In Pittsfield
The Pittsfield Fire Department battled a two-alarm blaze on Thursday morning at 16 Von Nida Ave.
Upon arrival, just after 5:00 a.m., crews found heavy fire coming from the home.
"We got on the scene, the deputy made it a double alarm which brought additional engines to the scene, the people made it out." said Pittsfield Fire Chief Tom Sammons. "We were hampered, the electrical that had burned off the building was still live, so there was a corner of the building we couldn't extinguish right away. One person was transported from the scene to Berkshire Medical Center, the downstairs resident. He's in the hospital now, I'm not sure of his condition. It's under investigation now, we're not sure of what the cause is at this time. It was a quick knock down and the guys did a great job."
The cause is under investigation by Deputy Chief Dan Garner.
Sections of Onota St. were blocked off on Thursday morning.
