Bristol Firefighters Fight Flames at Engulfed Home
A home on Pawtucket Avenue caught fire.
Around 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Bristol police officers and firefighters responded to a two-story house that was engulfed in flames on the corner of Pawtucket Avenue and North Street near the Kickemuit River at the bottom of Butterworth Avenue.
The second story of the house was fully engulfed in flames by the time officials arrived. Firefighters doused most of the blazing fire, yet the wind continued to feed flames. As of 9:30 p.m., firefighters had entered the home and were still attempting to extinguish small batches of remaining fire.
It is believed the blaze may have been electrical, caused by holiday lights. According to officials, everyone made it out of the house and there are no serious injuries.
