House Damaged Near Roxbury

On February 16, 1956 in the afternoon hours firemen were sent to the Roxbury Road about ¼ mile from Roxbury for a house fire. When firemen arrived they found the neighbors had formed a bucket brigade and were keeping the blaze confined to the second floor of the 2-1/2-story frame house. The second floor of the house was destroyed and the first floor sustained water damage. The cause was not determined and a dollar loss was not given. A family of six was displaced. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
