Just after midnight this morning, firefighters were summoned to 515 Washington Street by the report that there was a futon on fire. The fire, which was under control by 1:00 a.m. and mostly extinguished by 1:30 a.m., caused extensive damage to the building. The report on the fire can now be read on the Hudson Fire Department website.
The picture below shows the scene when the first units arrived. No humans were injured, but the HFD reports that two cats perished in the fire.
