Fire breaks out inside Fall River triple-decker

SE Mass

FALL RIVER, Mass. (WPRI) — Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire to break out inside of a Fall River triple-decker Friday night.

Fall River Fire Chief Jason Poissant said the fire started on the ceiling of the second floor and spread to the third floor.

Within minutes, Poissant said crews responded to the multi-family home — located on Hamlet and Whipple Streets — and started knocking down the fire.

Seven occupants were displaced and Poissant said those who were home at the time were able to escape. No one was injured.
