The Natick Fire Department, joined by other area firefighting units, responded to a serious blaze late Wednesday morning at 11A Union St. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by local fire and police, as well as state authorities.
There were concerns initially of occupants in the 2,800+ sq. ft. home, but none were found after what Natick Fire Department described as “an aggressive interior fire attack and search of the building.”
The fire at the 2-family residence has displaced 5 occupants, who are being assisted by the Red Cross. Two dogs were rescued from the building by bystanders.
According to the Natick Fire Department, conditions at the building worsened quickly and the second floor ceiling began collapsing on fire crews. One firefighter was being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Natick’s crew was assisted on site by others from Framingham, Wellesley, and Weston, while Wayland’s Fire Department covered Natick stations 1 and 4.
