Grafton Village – A late night fire in Grafton Village has kept Firefighters from 3 area departments busy Friday night.

Chief John Cutter of the Grafton Village Fire Department said that they received the call of a fire on the second floor of a home at 1041 Wellfleet Ave around 11:30 Friday night. “When we arrived on scene we found fire coming from a second floor window and we also learned that the only occupant in the house at the time of the fire had gotten out already.”

Firefighters were able to enter the home and bring the fire under control and knock it down in s short amount of time. Although there appeared to be heavy fire damage to an upstairs room Firefighters were successful in containing the blaze to the upstairs.

Chief Cutter said that the teenaged occupant was able to escape the fire uninjured. Even with the teen safely outside there was still the family dog somewhere in the home. Firefighters found the dog inside hiding underneath a bed and brought him out safe and sound. When asked if they knew the dog’s name one Firefighter replied, Lucky!

Grafton Village received mutual assistance from Eaton Township and Grafton Township Fire Departments. Grafton Village EMS EMT’s also stood by to provide medical coverage.
