Three adults and two children at home at the time of the fire all exited the house safely. A resident said a lamp in the first floor of the house caught fire and set the curtains ablaze.

Fire officials said the first floor of the house has major fire damage and the second floor has significant smoke damage.

WLEC says Columbus Ave is closed between Lane St and Follett St. I kind of recognize this house and I think it is near the underpass. So sad for the folks who live there.

It's bad anytime, but what an especially bad time of the year for this to happen.
Prayers for the family to recover from this fire.


I hope the Register can provide information in regards to how this family can be helped.
