“WEBSTER – Fire heavily damaged an abandoned three-decker at 34 East Main St. Tuesday night.
Fire Chief Brian Hickey said there were no injuries; he said there may have been people squatting in the house, but extensive searches of the three-story building did not locate anyone inside.
The chief said firefighters encountered heavy fire coming from the house when they arrived around 10:30 p.m. The chief quickly struck second and third alarms, which brought in firefighters from several area towns, including Dudley, Webster, Southbridge, Oxford, Douglas, and Quinebaug, Conn.
He said firefighters were able to aggressively attack the exterior fire, and then gain access to the interior. Firefighters were still chasing stubborn pockets of fire in the rear of the building at midnight; most of the house appeared to sustain heavy fire damage.
The chief said the state fire marshal’s office arrived to work with local authorities to determine a cause. He said power was cut to the home previous to the fire.”
