An occupant of a home north of Waterford suffered injuries in a fire that caused considerable property damage on April 29.
Norfolk firefighters responded to the alarm on Angling Road south of Boston around 10 a.m.
The Norfolk County fire department reports the house was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Two people were in the home when the fire broke out.
“One occupant suffered burns and smoke inhalation while attempting to fight the fire and was transported by paramedic services to Norfolk General Hospital,” said assistant fire chief James Robertson.
“The other occupant was downstairs at the time, heard the smoke alarm, and was able to safely escape.”
Damage was severe. The county pegs the damage at $450,000, adding the owner of the property was insured.
The cause of the fire has not been determined. Firefighters from four stations responded to the blaze. There were no reports of injuries involving first responders.
