11 South Prospect Street, the morning after
Amherst fire fighters fought the elements almost as much as the fire that broke out late last night into the early morning at 11 South Prospect Street, a two family home adjacent to the American Legion pretty much dead in town center. Fortunately nobody was injured.
Just before responding to this potentially devastating blaze another "box alarm" had come in from Pelham Road near the Amherst/Pelham town line with reports of "smoke in the structure." But that call proved to be a false alarm.
Engine 2 was then diverted to the South Prospect Street fire to join with Engine 3 (Student Call Force), Engine 1, Ladder 1, and Rescue 1.
The blaze was confined to the 2nd floor bedroom but this morning a bright sticker on the front door shows that the building is condemned until basic renovations take place.
