Alarms silent in fire in Taunton

Volunteers aid 30 left homeless

A fire that began between a building’s walls prevented alarms from alerting apartment building residents Sunday night, said Captain Robert Bastis, Taunton’s fire inspector.

When the first firefighters ­arrived at the scene at 103 Hart St. just after 9 p.m., no smoke filled the halls or rooms, and crews had to search the building for the fire.
