Firefighter Suffers Minor Injury in Hudson Fire

December 5, 2018

HUDSON -- A firefighter was injured as crews battled a blaze that broke out inside a commercial building Tuesday afternoon at 10 Roosevelt Ave.

The blaze broke out shortly after 5 p.m., and was under control shortly after 6 p.m., according to a press release issued by the Hudson Police Department.

The injured firefighter was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, the release states. He has since been released.

The fire damage inside the industrial building was contained to the office area of the structure, the release states.

The fire call was complicated when firefighters were told on scene that a person was missing in the area of the building fire.

A search of the building’s office and warehouse area turned up no one. Firefighters were later told the missing occupant had been located away from the building.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation by the Hudson Fire Department Inspectional Services Division.
