Nursing home fire in Stoughton MA. under investigation

The Stoughton Fire Department is investigating what sparked the small fire recently at The Copley at Stoughton Nursing Care Center located on Sumner Street. No one was hurt and none of the 116 residents were evacuated.
According to Stoughton Fire Captain Jim Bertram they responded to a report of a brush fire a half mile from the nursing home. “You could see a live wire on the telephone poll that arced with other wires,” Bertram said. “That energized the other wires and back-fed into the wire connected to the call box at the nursing home,” he said. A jolt of electricity from that wire caused the fire, he said.
