MARLBOROUGH – The Marlborough Fire Department were called to a structure fire this afternoon. 

The fire at 391 Farm Road was reported at 4:48 p.m.

Engine 3, Engine 1, Engine 5, Rescue 1, Tower 1 and Car 5 responded on the initial alarm.  Patriot EMS responded to the scene with an ambulance. Engine 3 was the first due truck on scene and reported smoke and fire from the rear of the house with possible extension to the attic space. 

The box for a working fire was transmitted. Marlborough Car 1 and Car 2 responded to the scene as did Southborough Fire Engine 22 as the Rapid Intervention Team. The Hudson and Sudbury Fire Departments provided station coverage. 

Crews from Eversource and National Grid were requested to respond to the scene to shut off the utilities. The fire was extinguished, and the walls and ceilings in the fire area were opened up to ensure that the fire had not spread to other parts of the structure.

The Marlborough Fire Department’s Fire Investigation Unit was requested to come to the scene to determine the cause. The box was recalled at 8:00 p.m. Damage estimates are being assessed.
