An unattended pan left on a stove was the cause of a fire in Claremont on Tuesday afternoon. Fire Chief Richard Bergeron said firefighters arrived at 8 Park Ave just before 2 PM to find light smoke coming from the multi-family dwelling. Jamie Mulhern, owner of the property, advised firefighters that there was a stove fire in the first-floor apartment, and that all residents were evacuated. The fire was contained to the kitchen cabinets and a small area of the ceiling, and extinguished quickly. However, the building sustained varying levels of smoke and fire damage. The fire was under control shortly before 2:30 PM. The Claremont Police Department and Golden Cross Ambulance assisted the Claremont Fire Department.
