According to a post on the North Adams 911 Facebook page, the North Adams Fire Department was called in to give mutual aid to the Adams Fire Department. Cheshire Fire was also called in to assist. We are told that Savoy firefighters were involved in battling the blaze as well.
The fire at 14 Hastings Avenue was called at around in Adams 4:45 pm, and according to the post, the structure was fully involved within minutes.
A report in the Berkshire Eagle says that 32-year-old Tracy Videtta, a resident in the home, was able to escape the fire and make it a neighbors house to call 911. She told the newspaper that she had made it out with a puppy, but 6 other pets - three dogs and three cats - did not make it out of the home.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The home was fully involved when firefighters arrived...
