Two Firefighters Injured in Norton House Fire

The fire destroys one side of a home on Buttonwod Road.

Two firefighters were sent to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro for treatment of back injuries after they fell down the stairs in a burning home on Buttonwood Road in Norton.

Capt. Benton Keene of the Norton Fire Department said the fire destroyed much of one side of the single-family home, which is located next to a wooded area at the end of the short road off Reservoir Street.

The department received a call about the fire shortly before 6 p.m., Keene said. It was quickly controlled. Firefighters were still putting out a few hotspots at 9 p.m.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Keene said it appears, preliminarily, the blaze started outside the home.

This is right next to my house and just hearing about this is very sad. Hope the fire fighters will be okay. Everybody in the house is fine
