The fire broke out in a storage shed under the deck at about 10:00 am, Sunday, August 28th. Within minutes, Lanesborough firefighters were on the scene. Fire crews came to the scene from Cheshire, Dalton, Hancock, and Hinsdale, while the Richmond department provided coverage at the Lanesborough fire house.
Firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to the rest of the building and had it contained within an hour. They remained at the restaurant until around 1 p.m.
The origin and cause of the fire were investigated by the Lanesborough Fire Department, Lanesborough Police Department, and state police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s office.
