Authorities are investigating the cause of a 2-alarm fire early Tuesday morning that sent fire departments from multiple communities, including Stoughton, to Turnpike Street in Easton.
The old Carriage House Restaurant on Route 138 went up in flames at approximately 3 a.m. Easton Firefighters were assisted by Stoughton, Norton, Raynham, West Bridgewater, Bridgewater and Sharon in putting out the blaze.
No firefighers entered the interior of the building, Easton firefighter Lawrence Blye said, and no injuries occurred.
Easton Fire Chief Kevin Partridge said that while he is unsure as to what could have caused the fire, an electrical fire can be ruled out. There was no power running through the building.
Partridge said construction supplies had been stored in the building by the owner, and workers frequented the building, despite lack of electricity.
