(Easthampton, MA) – The state fire marshall is investigating the cause of a fire last night in Easthampton. Crews were called to the scene of a house fire at 14 Lux Avenue in Easthampton around 11:45 last night. The house was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived and they fought the fire into the early morning hours. Southampton, Westhampton and Northampton all provided mutual aid.
