From Doing It Local
Firefighters rescued two people trapped in a house fire at 214 Bennett Street in Black Rock. When firefighters arrived they were aware of two elderly people trapped on the second floor. The firefighters quickly gained entry and rescued the two victims.
Assistant Fire Chief Christopher Martin told me their injuries did not appear to be life threatening. About twenty minutes later the firefighters had the bulk of the fire knocked down and spent about another hour knocking down hot spots. The majority of the fire was in the back of the house on the second floor and attic area. The fire marshal was quickly called to the scene to investigate the source of the fire.
