Tenants Displaced After Greenfield Fire

(Greenfield, MA) — About a dozen elderly and disabled residents are displaced after Tuesday night’s fire at the Mill House Apartments on Wells Street in Greenfield. The fire was contained to a third-floor unit but smoke and water damage made other apartments uninhabitable. The tenants have been placed in temporary housing by the management company. Beacon Communities says the apartments should be ready for occupancy again by the beginning of next week.
