One Dead in North Attleborough Fire

Mass. (AP) – The fire chief says one person has died in a three-alarm blaze at an apartment complex in North Attleborough.

At least one other person has been seriously injured in the fire at the apartments on Chestnut Street that was reported just after midnight Monday.

No names were immediately released but Chief Peter Lamb says the person who died was male.

Authorities believe the fire started in a second-floor unit, but the exact cause remains under investigation.

Firefighters from several surrounding communities helped fight the blaze.

Several other people were displaced from their homes.
