Southern Berkshire Town Responds To Suspicious Fires


Sunday morning, three buildings were burned to the ground in Mount Washington, Massachusetts, a small, remote Berkshire town in the state’s southwest  corner between New York and Connecticut. Brian Tobin serves as select board member, director of emergency management, and acting police chief in the community of around 160. He spoke to WAMC about the fires, their impact on the people of Mount Washington, and what authorities are doing to respond.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
