Fifteen people were displaced by a fire that destroyed a three-story home Saturday morning, a fire official said. The three-alarm fire, at 3 Hitchcock Road, was reported just before 5 a.m., said Geoffery Gardell, deputy fire chief. Firefighers used ladders to rescue five residents from the third floor.
