Firefighter's home damaged in Christmas Eve fire

Firefighters found heavy fire in that person's apartment.

Firefighters were able to take control of the fire and put it out before it could cause major damage to the rest of the home.

The fire started about 3 p.m.

He said, "We smelled smoke so we got up and checked the house out".

Ostroskey's office, Abington police and fire officials and the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office are investigating the cause of the fire. They said the apartments were either burned or heavily damaged by water. He said neighbors were bringing blankets for the residents to wrap themselves in and offering their houses as shelter on the cold, snowy morning.

"Within minutes, the Middlesex Fire Department responded and immediately requested a second alarm." he said.

CMPD says both trailers are destroyed and Red Cross is assisting in housing one of the families.

A man died at an Abington apartment complex yesterday in a fire that remains under investigation.
