REHOBOTH, Mass. — A fire has destroyed a 200-year-old home in a Massachusetts town.
Firefighters responded to the blaze in Rehoboth around 12:20 a.m. Sunday. Assistant Fire Chief Mark Haskell says the flames were so intense motorists could see it from the nearby Interstate 195.
The fire had engulfed the home and a nearby barn before firefighters were able to get it under control.
Fire officials say a working fire alarm helped all of the residents escape the home unharmed. A relative of the owner of the building tells The Sun Chronicle five or six of his 15 tractors were destroyed.
Authorities are currently investigating what sparked the fire.
