Firefighters Work to Put Out Flames at Easthampton Home

EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) — Firefighters worked to extinguish a kitchen fire in Easthampton on Northampton Street Monday night.

Emergency personnel received the call just before 10:00 p.m. The two-family home at 88 Northampton Street had heavy smoke coming from the attic when firefighters arrived. In a statement to ABC40, the Fire Department said the flames were started by cooking oil on a stove top.

Fire crews estimate the damage in the affected apartment at around $60,000.

Route 10 was closed for a short time while crews worked, but the road has since been reopened. The Northampton Fire Department also helped Easthampton crews.

There were no reported injuries.
