SUDBURY — A three-alarm fire engulfed a two-family home on Hemlock Road Saturday night, with Sudbury Fire Department leading the response efforts.

The blaze at 82 Hemlock Road was reported to firefighters around 8 p.m. on April 6. Chief John Whalen stated that upon their arrival, the firefighters faced intense flames emanating from the rear of the building, hindering their initial interior attack.

Subsequent alarms were sounded, calling for additional personnel and equipment. Firefighters from neighboring towns, including Framingham, Wayland, Marlborough, Stow, and Concord, provided on-scene mutual aid, while Lincoln, Bedford, and Weston departments contributed with station coverage.

Fortunately, the residence was unoccupied at the time of the incident, and no injuries have been reported. However, the structure is anticipated to be a total loss. Displaced residents are currently receiving support from friends and family.

Crews continued their efforts to fully extinguish the fire and remained on-site overnight for overhaul operations to prevent re-ignition. The investigation into the cause of the fire is underway, involving the Sudbury Fire Department, the State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s office, and the District 14 Regional Fire Investigation Team.
