NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a fire tore through a North Attleboro home Monday morning.

The entire neighborhood was enveloped in a smoky haze. Neighbors told 12 News they could barely see down the street.
“All of a sudden, I just see smoke,” Edgar Rivera said, “I’m like, ‘that’s not rain’ obviously, and I just had the instinct to call 9-1-1.”
North Attleboro Fire Chief Christopher Coleman confirmed the house was significantly damaged and three residents have been displaced.
“They had very heavy fire on the first floor. As you can see behind me, the whole entire porch was on fire” Coleman said.
The fire was challenging to fight due to how narrow the street is, but there was no damage to any surrounding homes.
The fire was under control by 1 p.m. No one was injured, and the cause is unknown at this time.
