HATFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - Crews were called to a fire in Hatfield on Tuesday afternoon.
Hatfield Fire Chief Robert Flaherty said that firefighters were called to the single-family home on Bridge Street around 3:15 p.m. Tuesday.
Upon arrival, light smoke was seen on the first floor with a fair amount of heat and there was a lot of smoke and heat damage to that that first floor.
