Four-alarm fire rips through Townsend church rectory

TOWNSEND – A four-alarm fire tore through the rectory of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church overnight Monday.
The fire out at about 1:15 a.m. The first firefighers on the scene saw flames shooting from the roof of the two-story building at 1 School St. Fire Chief Mark Boynton said the fire was under control by about 6 a.m.
Boynton said the three-story, 100-year-old structure was destroyed. The fire did not damage the church.
Father Jeremy St. Martin suffered burns to his hands and was treated at Nashoba Valley Medical Center and later released. Boynton said there were no other injuries.
Firefighters from Townsend and several area communities, including Fitchburg, responded to the scene.
This is a developing story.
