2 adults and a teen got out of the Valley Street home safely. They were insured. The local fire company got there within 8 minutes. In all, 6 fire companies dumped thousands of gallons of water on the blaze to knock it down in about 90 minutes. They couldn't take it all from the municipal water supply, so they established a water station from fresh water nearby.
There were electrical explosions and power lines that came down because of the fire. The power company was called in to shut off power for several hours to deal with the situation. Fortunately no one was hurt. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
