On January 19, 2018 the Franklin Township Police Department received a 9-1-1 call reporting a structure fire on Burnham Street.  Upon arrival officers observed heavy smoke coming from the second story of the dwelling.  The two residents of the home self-evacuated as the officer arrived.   Firefighters from several Franklin Township Fire Departments responded and extinguished the blaze.  The house was ultimately deemed uninhabitable.  

Firefighters from the Franklin Township Office of Fire Prevention responded to the scene to investigate the incident.  The initial investigation revealed that the fire started in an upstairs room and does not appear to be suspicious in nature.  No one was injured in this incident.  The residents were lodged in an area hotel for the night.
