Man’s Body Recovered After Overnight Brimfield Fire
BRIMFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – A body has been found inside the house where a massive fire broke out in Brimfield early Christmas morning.
State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan confirmed a body was located on Wednesday while sifting through debris left from the blaze. The deceased was an adult male. He was the only occupant of the home during the fire.
The fire broke out just after midnight on Hollow Road. Our crew on the scene reported heavy smoke billowing from the house and flames that could be seen from windows and the roof. There was extensive damage to the building and partial structural collapse.
Witnesses said that several different fire departments were helping to put out that fire.
Investigators from the state fire marshal’s office are trying to determine the cause of the fire. Mass. State Police told ABC40 they were also investigating the blaze, along the State Police Crime Scene Service Section to search for finger prints and other items at the scene.
According to the Fire Marshal, further results of the investigation will be withheld pending an autopy of the deceased.
