Taunton Fire Crews Save Home Despite Frozen Hydrants

Five people are safe tonight, rescued from their burning home Sunday.

Fire crews responded to a home on Barnum Street in Taunton, just before 5 a.m. Once on scene, firefighters found that the hydrants around the home were frozen. Crews were able to quickly adapt, and put out the fire, but are now talking with Taunton's Public Works Water Division to find out what happened.

The fire is described as accidental, and started in the kitchen.
