CONWAY, Mass. (WWLP) – Firefighters in the Franklin County town of Conway were concerned that an elderly resident was trapped inside of a burning house Saturday morning.
The fire department had received reports that an elderly homeowner was still inside the house on North Poland Road after it caught fire.
Firefighters were working to extinguish the flames, when Fire Chief Robert Baker received some good news from the owner’s family.
Baker told 22News, “We had first thought somebody was in the building, but we just got confirmation ten minutes ago from family members everybody was able to get out safely. That’s a good thing, everybody’s out safe.”
Everyone got out safely, but the home was completely destroyed. Firefighters are still trying to determine how the fire started.
