EASTHAMPTON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - Firefighters were called to a fire on Picard Circle in Easthampton Tuesday afternoon.

Easthampton fire officials said that a passerby reported the fire around 1:30 p.m.

The fire reportedly originated on the first floor and then burned a hole in the exterior siding and extended up the outside of the home, which burned a hole in the floor and created a drop down fire in the basement.

Investigators were able to determine that the fire was caused by a short circuit in an electrical outlet.
