That’s according to our crew who responded to the scene and spoke with Easthampton Fire Chief Croake.
Emergency personnel were notified of the house fire located at 5 Arthur Street at 9:37 p.m. tonight.
The fire which originally started out as a stove fire quickly got out of control. A police officer was the first to respond and by the time she got the fire extinguisher from her cruiser and started to head back inside, the fire turned into a heavy one in the kitchen.
It took firefighters about 15 minutes to put out the flames.
No one was injured in the incident.
It’s estimated that between $35,000 and $40,000 in damages was done to the home as a result.
Northampton and Southampton Fire Departments provided mutual aid.
