Chief Noyes, with the Pittsfield Fire Department, told Western Mass News that upon arrival the first floor was engulfed in flames. The fire then rapidly spread to the second story, blowing out the windows.

Noyes added that the two civilians who were injured suffered from smoke inhalation and were taken to Baystate Medical Center.

The firefighter who was injured suffered a knee injury, Noyes said. They were also taken to Baystate Medical Center.

All 18 on duty firefighters responded from Pittsfield, additional support was also called in from Lenox, Dalton and the Hinsdale Rehab Unit was also on the scene.
