House on Ned’s Point Road damaged in fire
MATTAPOISETT —A fire damaged a home at 18 Ned's Point Rd. on Tuesday afternoon.
The Mattapoisett, Marion, Rochester and Fairhaven Fire Departments responded to the fire, and Eversource was on scene working on power lines on the road.
Firefighters shot water from multiple angles to douse the flames, which broke through the roof of the house.
No one appeared to have been hurt during the fire, but is unclear whether anyone was in the building during the fire.
Following the fire, Selectmen commended the Mattapoisett Fire Department’s efforts at the scene.
“It could have been a disaster and I really want to thank you for their work today,” said Paul Silva, chairman of the Board of Selectman, to vice-chairman Jordan Collyer, who also serves as a captain on the Mattapoisett fire department. Collyer thanked the mutual aid support provided by surrounding towns.
No information from the Mattapoisett Fire Department was available as of Wednesday morning.
