Berkshire lumber yard ablaze

A large lumber yard in the western Massachusetts town of Lee was engulfed in flames, drawing firefighters from throughout Berkshire County who have so far kept it from spreading into the community’s downtown.

Officials said the blaze at the Dresser-Hull Lumber Co. on Railroad Street was reported shortly before 8 p.m. The location is just steps from Main Street and downtown Lee, but fire officials said they had the blaze contained to the yard and that nearby homes and businesses were not in immediate danger.
