MANSFIELD – A bungalow on Caldwell Street caught fire overnight Sunday.
The Mansfield Fire Department responded to 1260 Caldwell St. around 3 a.m. and firefighters saw flames coming from the roof, according to a Facebook post from the firefighters union, International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 266.
They stayed on scene for about three hours, and no one was injured in the blaze, which was so hot that it melted the siding the house next door.
The owner of the one-story bungalow, Gaytan Ignacio, stood in the driveway Sunday just before noon, surveying the damage.
The property was vacant, he said, and it was being renovated so it could be a rental.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
