Hampden County

One woman was taken to the hospital after a fire on Meadowlark Lane in Chicopee Friday night.

According to the Chicopee Fire Department, at 10:21 p.m. firefighters were called to a condo complex at 25 Meadowlark Lane for a report of fire alarms going off.

The department said when firefighters got there they found a fire in a condo on the end of the complex.

Firefighters initially struggled to put out the fire because of clutter, heavy black smoke, and heat when they got into the condo.

However after 30 minutes firefighters were able to contain the fire to the living room and put it out.

The department said a woman was rescued by firefighters and taken to Baystate Medical Center for treatment. 

The extent of the woman’s injuries and her condition was unknown as of Saturday morning.
