Fire in Franklin

01 24 Franklin fire

A home at 25 E. Bow St. in Franklin was left uninhabitable after a fire on Saturday morning, but no one was hurt. Firefighters were called to the building at 2:15 a.m. and found flames blazing from a rear window. All occupants had gotten out of the house. By 3:09, the fire was extinguished, but the building sustained significant damage. There were no working smoke alarms, so the homeowner was awakened by the sound of crackling fire. The cause of the fire is unknown. The Red Cross has provided assistance to the family. Fire Chief Kevin LaChapelle said, "Working smoke alarms save lives. The occupants were very lucky to have escaped without injury." (Courtesy photo/Franklin Fire Department)
