Norton fire truck

NORTON — Firefighters extinguished a blaze in a mobile home late Wednesday night that displaced two residents. The fire was reported about 11:30 p.m. in Unit 40 at 157 Mansfield Ave.

“The residents were woken up by a crackling noise in the walls and soon after the smoke alarms sounded as the home filled up with smoke,” Deputy Fire Chief Benton Keene said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation but isn’t considered suspicious, Keene said.

Damage was estimated at about $10,000. The two residents were helped by the Red Cross.

Attleboro Fire Department sent a ladder truck to the scene and Easton firefighters covered Norton’s fire headquarters.

Firefighters were at the scene for about two hours.
