Two Alarm Fire Rips Through Five Corners Burger King
Significant damage to building but no injuries after fire Sunday night sends Easton and area fire departments to the scene.
A two-alarm fire ripped through Burger King at Easton's five corners Sunday night, causing significant damage to the building.
There were no injuries reported, according to Easton Fire Chief Kevin Partridge. The cause of the fire, which started in the building's cieling, is still unknown and under investigation, Partridge said.
The assistant general manager was in his office when he heard crackling coming from the cieling. He quickly got himself and the other two employees out of the building, according to the chief.
Easton was assisted by Mansfield, Stoughton, Norton and West Bridgewater in putting out the fire. Workers used two ladder trucks and opened the roof of the building in order to put out the flames.
