Sunday morning house fire ties up Kingston Fire for over 3 hours, causes 75k in damages
NORTHWEST KINGSTON- Electrical causes were the culprit of a two alarm, early morning house fire along Saint Francis Avenue, which kept emergency personnel at the scene for three and a half hours and caused $75,000 in damages.
Kingston Fire responded to the call, at 3 Saint Francis Ave, shortly after midnight on Sunday morning with two engines, a ladder and an ambulance, according to Kingston Fire Chief Robert Heath.
Heath, who was the incident commander at the Sunday morning fire, told KingstonJournal.com that Kingston firefighters were assisted by crews from Duxbury while Plymouth firefighters covered for Kingston at the North Kingston Fire Station on Route 27.
Heath reported no injuries at the scene, which is right across from Silver Lake Regional High School, and said he was assisted by Deputy Chief Mark Douglass with incident command.
