No injuries in Rogers Street fire

Jan 24, 2020

Bliss Corner residents may have been alarmed, but no one was injured in a fire that occurred in the afternoon on January 24 which briefly closed off a portion of Rogers Street to traffic.

Dartmouth Fire District No. 1 rushed to the scene at 109 Rogers Street after the alarm went off at 1:37 p.m., extinguishing the fire within minutes. 

“A fire in a closet of a mobile home appears to be electrical at this time,” said Chief Peter Andrade at the scene. “We’re still investigating.”

The home had some damage to the exterior as well as the interior closet.

After putting out the fire, Andrade said, the firefighters overhauled the room — meaning they found and extinguished all potential hot spots to prevent any rekindling of the flames.

The street was opened to traffic again within the hour.
