Firefighters from Stoughton, Sharon and Canton worked to put out a fire at a building on Southworth Court in Stoughton on Sunday. There were no injuries.
While there was potential for a more serious blaze, thanks to the quick work of firefighters, a fire at an old machine shop on Southworth Court in Stoughton early Sunday evening was extinguished, causing only moderate damage to the front corner of the brick building.
