Oxford’s Fire Department was dispatched to a fire that began in a vehicle in the driveway of a home on Old Southbridge Road.
Deputy Chief Jon Belanger tells THE LAKE 940, “The fire started in a commercial vehicle that was warming in the driveway.” The homeowner attempted to push the vehicle away from the house using another second vehicle which also caught fire in the process.
The fire was called in at 6:15 this morning by the homeowner, followed by 2 additional 911 calls from witnesses in the area, and was extinguished shortly after crews arrived on scene.
The two vehicles burned and suffered significant damage. Heat from the blaze melted the siding on the home next to the driveway. National Grid and the Oxford electrical inspector were contacted to check the electrical main on the side of the home.
There were no injuries and no one displaced. The cause of the fire is under investigation but believed to be accidental in nature.
