New Bedford and Dartmouth firefighters were kept busy Sunday. In New Bedford, firefighters responded to a house fire at 211 Weld Street. It started in the window frame of the third floor hallway of the triple decker and it took firefighters about 15 to 20 minutes to dose the fire.

No injuries were reported and District Chief Michael Dandurand says the cause appears to be accidental. Damage is estimated at 3 thousand dollars.

Meanwhile in Dartmouth, firefighters battled a blaze in a home on Red Oak Lane in North Dartmouth.

Tankers had to be called in from three neighboring fire districts to provide water since the nearest hydrant was more than a mile away.

Investigators believe it started in the basement and worked its way up through the structure. The cause is being investigated.

Four people inside the home were able to escape safely.
