The Pittsfield Fire Department says it responded to two unrelated fires in a 12-hour window between Thursday night and Friday morning.
Deputy chief Dan Garner told WAMC Friday that there was no connection between the fires.
“First fire was 8 o’clock last night at 38 Grove Street," said the deputy chief. "It was a kitchen fire. It was knocked down relatively quick. No injuries reported – civilian or fire injuries. The occupants were displaced and Red Cross assisted them. There was another fire this morning at 73 McArthur Street. That was an attic fire. It was a pretty well involved attic fire that’s been ruled accidental causes.”
The two occupants of that building were also displaced, but the fire department says they found new lodging.
