Flames could be seen coming from the roof of a home on Cheshire Road.
WINDSOR, Mass. — Five local fire departments were braving frigid temperatures on Wednesday to battle a structure fire at 1061 Cheshire Road.
The blaze was reported at about 3:23 p.m. at the single-family home along the rural road near the town line with Cheshire.
Dalton, Savoy, Worthington and Plainfield volunteer fire departments responded to the scene along with Windsor firefighters.
The home is owned by a James Lewis, according to documents on file at the Registry of Deeds.
Adams Fire Department and Forest Wardens are standing by for Windsor, with a firetruck and a tanker from the Forest Wardens.
Cheshire and Lanesborough departments were also asked to respond at about 5:40 p.m. Peru and Hinsdale, which sent a bus with portable heaters, also responded.
The Red Cross was also going to the scene to provide assistance to the family, two adults and a child.
Red Cross officials say the Lewises are being provided with emergency shelter at a hotel and emergency funds for clothing, food, shoes and winter coats. They were also provided with "comfort kits," which contain toiletries like tooth brushes and razors.
