There was a 2-alarm fire at 18 Dover Road in South Natick on Easter Sunday night that sent flames high into the sky as responders doused the blaze. No one was hurt, and the owners of the 5-bedroom historic structure built in 1880 were not at home. Natick Fire Chief Michael Lentini said the cause has not been determined. The fire was called in at around 8pm, and firefighters had it under control by 9:30pm. They stayed on the scene until after midnight
Wellesley and Framingham fire departments were on scene, and Wayland and Weston assisted with coverage.
Last month the Natick Organic Community Farm’s barn burned to the ground during an early morning fire that claimed the lives of three sows and 13 piglets. No people were hurt in the 3-alarm blaze. The timber-framed barn, built after the Hurricane of 1815 using wood that was milled on-site from downed oak trees, was a total loss.
