Framingham Fire Department
A two-alarm fire damaged an apartment building in Framingham Tuesday morning. No one was injured, but some families might be displaced, the city’s fire chief said.
Firefighters were called to the blaze at Lord Chesterfield Apartments at 10 Greenview St. at 10:16 a.m., Framingham fire Chief Joe Hicks said.
He said firefighters found flames and smoke billowing from a third-floor bedroom window.
Firefighters opened up the roof in an attempt to push the flames up into the air instead of across the building, he said.
“They quickly attacked the fire and held it to one unit,” Hicks said. The fire was controlled by around 10:45 a.m.
The Framingham police and the Red Cross responded to the scene to help with anyone displaced. Hicks said a few families might be affected.
“A multifamily apartment complex with a heavy volume of fire is the most serious fire you can have,” Hicks said. “Fortunately, everyone got out in time.”
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
