SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Multiple firefighters were called to a “residential” structure fire in Sandisfield Monday afternoon.

The fire was first reported around 1:35 p.m.

The dispatcher for the Sandisfield Fire Department tells Western Mass News the structure is in the area of Rt. 8.

At one point black smoke could be seen from a distance, but it appears the fire has since been put out, the dispatcher told us.

The Monterey Fire Department reports they provided mutual aid to Sandisfield with one of their trucks and engines.

We’re told the Great Barrington Fire Department, as well as Tolland also provided assistance.

No word yet if anyone was injured.

According to the State Fire Marshal’s Office the origin of the fire hasn’t been determined yet. Their representative, Jake Wark confirms with us that it’s a “residential structure” that caught fire.
