Two firefighters injured in blaze
OXFORD, Mass. — A firefighter was injured when a five-alarm fire tore through a historic building in Oxford overnight.
The incident happened on Main Street. There are four apartments in the building that dates back to 1756, and all of the residents were able to get out safely.
Fire Chief Sheri Bemis said several firefighters slipped on the ice that formed in the freezing temperatures and two were hurt, including one who required transportation to a hospital for a fractured hip.
“We have a lot of fire in a rear wall. We are trying to preserve that wall so we can do an investigation,” Bemis said.
State Fire Marshal investigators were on the scene trying to determine a cause.
