House fire on Michael Drive in Westfield

The fire started in the garage then spread into the house

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A fire on 21 Michael Drive in Westfield, located off Russellville Rd, destroyed part of a home Saturday morning.

The couple living there escaped from the flames. They have nearby family to help them deal with their loss and provide them with a place to live until they get back on their feet.

According to Deputy Chief Mark Devine, the fire began in their attached garage just before 8:00am Saturday morning.

The deputy chief told 22News that there was no heat detector in the garage. The garage fire then spread into the house causing so much damage that Deputy Devine believes the house will have to be condemned.
