LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – Firefighters put out a fire that has destroyed a home on Center Street in Ludlow early Thursday morning.

Ludlow Fire Department Private Dan Mckenney told 22News they were called to 1400 Center Street in Ludlow around 2:30 a.m. for the house fire. He said no one was home at the time, and no injuries have been reported. When firefighters got there, the house was fully engulfed in flames.

Aftermath of Center Street fire

McKenney said since there are no fire hydrants on that section of Center Street, firefighters had to fill tanker trucks with water a couple of streets away where the nearest hydrants are located.

Firefighters from Ludlow, Granby, and Belchertown had to use tanker trucks to pour water onto the house.

The Wilbraham Fire Department is helping cover the Ludlow Fire Department while they are out at the site of the fire.

Police are directing traffic through the area, and Center Street has fully reopened.

A cause of the fire has not been determined.
