Pittsfield Firefighters Battle 2-Alarm Blaze on Daniels Ave.

Staff Reports
A condominium building on Daniels Avenue suffered extensive damage after a fire on Monday night.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A two-alarm fire on Daniels Avenue late Monday night ripped through three-story building and left two firefighters reeling from heat exhaustion.

According to the report by Deputy Chief Bruce Kilmer, firefighters responded with five engines and a ladder truck to the 133 Daniels Ave. about 10:37 p.m. There was heavy fire showing on the front of the wood-frame building near the corner of Madison Avenue.

"Upon our arrival, aggressive attack with landlines by first arriving crews slowed the fire," wrote Kilmer.

There was no one in the building during the fire but three families were displaced and being aided by the Red Cross with temporary housing.

Two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion and dehydration, one at the scene and the other after being transported to Berkshire Medical Center.

The building is considered a major loss because of fire, smoke and water damage. It sustained severe structural damage to the first floor that extended into the second floor and partway into the third floor. The building was insured.

The structure contained condominium units developed by Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
