Firefighters brave frigid temperatures while battling blaze that destroyed Sherborn home

SHERBORN, MASS. (WHDH) - Dozens of firefighters braved frigid temperatures as they battled a massive blaze that destroyed a home in Sherborn on Friday morning.

Crews responding to a report of a fire at a multi-story home on Town Lyne Road found flames shooting from the roof and thick smoke billowing into the air.

Firefighters had to stretch water lines thousands of feet down the road to extinguish the blaze.

“We had significant water supply issues,” Sherborn Interim Fire Chief Zach Ward told reporters. “We have no pressurized fire hydrants on this street, so we had to lay a long supply line and use tankers. That supply line was laid to a hydrant in Millis.”

One firefighter suffered a minor injury, while two people in the home were taken to an area hospital. There was no immediate word on the extent of their injuries.

Photos from the scene showed several blown-out windows and parts of the roof that were eaten away in the blaze. The home has been deemed a total loss.

More than 50 firefighters from 10 area communities were called in to assist Sherborn fire crews.

Ward says the fire does not appear to be suspicious.

The cause remains under investigation.
