Cragin Home On Fitchburg's Oak Hill Road Damaged In Morning Fire, No One, Or Pets, Were Injured

FITCHBURG — A one-alarm morning fire broke out Wednesday morning at the home of School Committee member Sally Cragin nearly three years after her house was damaged in another blaze.

Fire Chief Kevin Roy said firefighters arrived at 1138 Oak Hill Road just before 8 a.m. and found flames in an office area on the second floor.

“They knocked it down pretty quickly,” he said.

No injuries were reported, Roy said.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation and is believed not to be suspicious, he said.

The family — Cragin, her husband, and two children — has been living in a mobile home on the property while the house was being repaired, Roy said.

One of the homeowners heard fire alarms going off from the mobile home, he said.

Cragin was not immediately available for comment Wednesday.

In May 2016, a two-alarm fire heavily damaged the home and killed the family’s cat, Wendlecat, who Cragin served as a therapy pet to area nursing homes and schools. The cause of that fire was accidental.
