Sharon Fire Crews Assist in Canton Fire Tuesday Night

Two residents were displaced as a result of Tuesday night's fire in Canton, though no injuries were reported.

The cause of a two-alarm fire that Tuesday night was the result of an accidental electrical issue, Canton Fire Chief Charles E. Doody said Wednesday. 

Canton fire crews had assistance from the Sharon, Stoughton and Norwood Fire Departments, while the Westwood and Randolph fire departments covered Canton's two stations. 

The fire broke out around 9 p.m. Tuesday, and caused fire damage to a basement electrical room. The two occupants who own the home were displaced as a result of the fire, though there were no injuries, Doody said. 

"They had fire damage to a basement electrical room, and that extended to the first-floor kitchen, and they had pretty significant smoke and water damage throughout," Doody said. 

The home, he added, will be uninhabitable until extensive repairs can be done to the electrical system, plumbing system and after cleanup has been taken care of.

As a former Milton resident, having the opportunity to stand for three very long winters and 1,491 hours in one man protest of the clsoing of the Atherton Street Fore Station back in 1992, Engine 4 and a 100 year old fire station which is in the western sector of Milton close to Curry college, I fully understand the need to have our local fire department fully manned and properly trained - www.bigdiglifevest.com. Reading this article reaffirms the need as well for the Chief's established mutual aid system where select communities can lned brotherly hand.... We should all thank those men and women who serve as our much needed first responders. Christopher Tingus
