Firefighter saves colleagues from building collapse Stone Soup was planning to close for good on Sunday


“All the crews did a great job,” French said. “It was impressive to see it come together.”

The building was unoccupied and no injuries were reported. French said he did not have an estimate on the amount of damage to the building.

French said the cause of the fire is under investigation. It does not appear to be suspicious, he said.

The 141 High St. location has also been the site of the Salt Box and White Cap restaurants.
