Wellesley firefighters and police, as well as the Needham Fire Department, responded to a call shortly after 9pm on Christmas Night for a fire on Wildon Road in Wellesley.
Wellesley Fire Chief Rick DeLorie reports that crews contained the fire to a small area, and that residents and firefighters were fine. The house is also able to remain occupied. Deputy Corda and his crews responded quickly and contained the fire, according to DeLorie.
The cause appeared to be a faulty electrical outlet. Further investigation will take place.

Storm does its damage
Local first responders were busy on Christmas Day. The overnight rain and wind storm on Christmas Eve took its tool around town. Reader PC shared this photo of a downed tree on Hampshire Road near Bristol Road. “No damage to people, property or electricity.”
