HANCOCK, Mass. — Fire caused heavy damage to Powder Hounds Restaurant on Wednesday afternoon and one firefighter was injured fighting it.

According to Fire Chief Dave Rash, the Fire Department received the call at about 2 p.m. and arrived to find "heavy smoke" and for the next two hours more than a half dozen fire departments worked to snuff it out.

"One Stephentown (N.Y.) firefighter has a high level of CO in his blood. He got some smoke but we're going to have him transported to BMC to get checked out," Rash said at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

Rash said the fire stayed completely on the west end of the second floor — in space used as the restaurant's office.

"It's was an old facility that's been modified and added onto and renovated so there was a lot of different stages of construction and different areas that were walled off. So it was really difficult to get to the fire," he said.

Departments from Lanesborough, Cheshire, Dalton, Williamstown, Stephentown and Hinsdale assisted in finally overcoming the Brodie Mountain Road blaze. New Ashford and Richmond were covering stations and Village Ambulance was on-scene.

No cause had yet been determined; the department was waiting for the state fire marshal.

Rash said the owner was receiving a delivery and preparing to open the business when the fire was detected by staff. The blaze was controlled at about 4 p.m. but firefighters will remain on scene to check for hotspots.

"We're doing a thorough investigation," Rash said. "We'll be here probably most of the night."
