House fire on State Street in Chicopee

Two people were home at the time of the fire

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A fire started at a home on State Street in Chicopee early Saturday morning. When our 22News crews first arrived, there were multiple fire trucks, police cruisers, and an ambulance blocking off the street.

Acting Deputy Fire Chief Douglas Sanford told 22News that Chicopee firefighters were called to the single story one-family home at 107 State Street around 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

The fire started in a bedroom on the left side of the home. Flames engulfed the left side of the home, but Sanford told 22News that firefighters were able to get it under control pretty quickly.

There were two people in the home at the time of the fire and both were able to get out without sustaining any injuries. The cause of the fire is not yet known at this time.

The now-homeless couple lost their belongings in the side of the house that was most seriously damaged. 22News doesn’t know for certain if the homeless couple will need the services of the Western Massachusetts Red Cross to find a temporary place to live.

We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available both on air and online.
