HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - Holyoke crews responded to Walnut Street Monday night for reports of a bedroom fire.

Our Western Mass News crew arrived on scene around 9:30 p.m. and saw a Holyoke Fire engine with its ladder extended up to one of the higher floors of the apartment building.

According to Holyoke Fire Captain David Rex, a fire broke out and was contained to a bedroom in an apartment on the fifth floor of the building.

Captain Rex told us that the apartment is currently unlivable, and crews originally described the situation as a “significant incident.”

The apartment complex’s owner is helping the tenants and the Red Cross will be called in to assist.

No injuries have been reported by civilians or firefighters.
