NORTHFIELD — A fire damaged the basement area of a home on Summer Street Sunday at 5:57 p.m. and was quickly extinguished by local firefighters.
Chief Michael Sitar said no one was home when the fire started at 35 Summer St., Apt. 21, and the fire was confined to the basement.
Sitar said the fire damaged the electrical panel for the eight units in the block so residents for all units were displaced.
"Quick notification by the neighbors was key to stopping the fire early," said fire officials.
There were no injuries and two pets were removed from the home.
Crews from Franklin, Sanbornton, New Hampton and Belmont assisted Tilton-Northfield.
