141 Leverett Road, Amherst. GarageHow you can help
The first major structure fire of the year, a rare event for Amherst, struck a house at 141 Leverett Road last night around 5:15 PM, only about two miles from AFD North Station.
Amherst firefighters were on the scene quickly, with mutual aid provided by units from Belchertown and Northampton, but the fire was already roaring.
The family of five got out of the 1.5 level wood frame structure safely, although one person was slightly burned and treated on the scene. The house appears to be a major loss.
