The 2 1/2 story structure is located at 158 Union Street. Fire crews arrived at the scene around 10 p.m. The house is in a section of Union Street where the houses are very close together but firefighters managed to contain the fire to just the one building. Everyone who was at home inside and next door were able to get out without injury.
Some newspaper accounts say there were apartments in the building which left another seven people homeless but such reports are erroneous.
The fire started in the front of the house but cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
Some time after the fire trucks left the scene, a neighbor had to call them back after noticing a re-kindling of flames inside.
