Sandisfield Town Garage Burns to the Ground

SANDISFIELD, Mass. — WesternMassNews.com is reporting that the Sandisfield Town Garage burned to the ground Sunday morning. 
 
According to news reports, the five-alarm fire was reported shortly after 9 a.m. and was "fully engulfed" when firefighters from multiple companies arrived at the scene. 
 
Sandisfield's Fire Chief Ralph Morrison told Western Mass News that highway crews had been at the building locking up just minutes before  the fire is believed to have started. 
 
The first snow storm of the season had rolled through the Berkshires beginning Saturday morning, dumping up to 6 inches of snow across the region. 
 
Sandisfield's four highway trucks were in the building and are now considered a total loss.  Western Mass News is also reporting an Otis fire vehicle was involved in an accident on its way to the scene.
