The Adams Fire Department put out a small fire in a home on Columbia Street that required the highway to be closed for a short time.

Mutual aid companies also arrived at the scene.

ADAMS, Mass. — The Fire department quickly knocked down a small fire at 246 1/2 Columbia St. on Wednesday.

Fire Chief John Pansecchi said the call came in late morning and once firefighters arrived at the single-family home, they were able to contain the blaze to one room that was used for storage by the owner.

"Knockdown was fairly quick once we got there and after we just had to do some overhaul," Pansecchi said. "It was pretty much contained in one room and there was some smoke and water damage."

Pansecchi said although the cause of the fire is still under investigation, it does not appear to be suspicious.

There were no injuries and they were able to retrieve a pet cat.

"There was a cat missing and they do like to hide but once things calmed down we were able to retrieve it," he said.

Pansecchi said because the call came in during the day when manpower is often an issue for volunteer departments, North Adams, Clarksburg, Savoy and Cheshire were automatically toned.

"They all arrived but we did not need them," he said.

He said the other departments did offer support and covered the station while the Adams Fire Department put out the fire.

Adams Ambulance and Police Department were also on scene.
