Basement Fire at 235 North St

A neighbor reported seeing smoke coming out of a townhome on North Street just before 9:00 a.m. Shortly after, several calls came in to the 911 Center reporting a basement fire at 235 North Street. CFD arrived minutes after dispatch to find smoke coming from the rear of the structure. Once inside, crews found a small fire in the basement and quickly extinguished it. Crews cleared around an hour after dispatch. This was one of many calls handled that day during the nor'easter.
