A family is displaced after their home on Fairmont Street caught fire Friday night claiming the lives of four of their pets.
Chicopee fire dispatch told Western Mass News that crews responded to the house located at 37 Fairmont St. at about 10:30 p.m.
The family was not home at the time the fire started.
The road was temporarily closed while crews worked to extinguish the flames. It took the Chicopee Fire Department only a few minutes to bring the situation under control.
Chicopee Fire Deputy Dupre told us they were able to rescue one dog from the home, but another dog and three cats inside did not make it out alive.
No one was injured in the fire.
Deputy Dupre said the cause has been ruled accidental, but that they "couldn't rule out smoking materials."
The damage was mainly contained to the first floor and is estimated at about $35,000.
