Abington: Multi-family home destroyed by fire

Sections of Route-123 in Abington were closed to traffic Monday evening as crews battled a house fire.

A multi-family home on Progress Street in Abington caught fire just after 4PM.

Cindy Gomes lives in the neighborhood and was home when the fire started,“It was just unbelievable smoke everywhere. I went to the other side [of the house] to see because there were people down there, the whole side and the whole back end of the house was in flames.”

Heavy fire was showing from the second floor of the two-story Abington home.

Gomes believes that all residents were able to leave the building without injury.

Additional crews from Holbrook, Norwell, Rockland, and Whitman responded to the two-alarm fire.
