NORTHFIELD - A Shaw Road home was destroyed and several pets died in a fire Thursday.
Northfield Fire Chief Michael Sitar told the Concord Monitor that a neighbor reported seeing smoke, and that no one was in the home at the time.
The fire started about 50 feet from the ranch-style house and wind appears to have blown the flames to the structure.
By the time firefighters arrived, the house was engulfed. Firefighters were able to stop the fire from spreading to a nearby garage and the surrounding woods. Sitar said two dogs and a cat died.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
