Pittsfield Fire Snuffs Out Blaze On Lakeway Drive

By Andy McKeever
iBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Two people have been displaced from their Lakeway Drive home after a fire caused heat and smoke damage Wednesday evening.
 
Deputy Fire Chief Raymond Tart said firefighters responded to 61 Lakeway Drive shortly before 6 p.m. There they found smoke coming from the first floor and quickly snuffed it out. There were two occupants, both of whom made it out of the home safely.
 
"It appears it was objects and not the room [that burned]. There is no structural damage at all. There is fire damage to the contents and heat and smoke damage on the first floor," Tart said.
 
One of the occupants is on oxygen and the tanks could have posed a hazard. But, firefighters made a quick stop and halted the fire from spreading. Tart said he believes the fire is accidental but isn't sure exactly what started it.
 
"The fire started in the central bedroom. We are unsure of the cause at this point. We have an investigator called in," he said.
 
There were no firefighter injuries and, within the hour, the engines left the scene. Lakeway was closed at Onota and Acorn streets for the duration.
 
Tart praised the work of the firefighters.
 
"It was awesome. The fire is out and we are going home soon. They made short work of it," Tart said as the firefighters wrapped up the hoses used to extinguish the blaze.
