A fire broke out overnight in a home owned by Senator Elizabeth Warren’s son Alex Warren. The home was located at Terrace Road, Medford, Massachusetts, where the water supply and water pressure posed a challenge to the firefighters’ crew battling the blaze.

Firefighters got reports of a structure fire in Medford, about five miles north of Boston. As the firefighters reached, they found the building fully involved in flames, according to a Facebook post by Medford Firefighters Local 1032.

Alex’s house is situated on the top of a hill, which added up to the challenge of getting ample water supply to the site to extinguish the fire, the firefighters’ body added. 

“The house sits atop a significant hill which contributed to issues gaining enough water supply,” the Facebook post read.

There was no one in the building when the incident occurred therefore no injuries were reported. Alex Warren owns the house, which was unoccupied and under construction. He is the son of the Democratic senator, Elizabeth Ann Warren US Senator from Massachusetts, serving since 2013.

“I deeply appreciate the efforts of the firefighters who worked through the night to put out a fire at our son’s house,” the Democratic senator said in a written statement.

“I am grateful that everyone is safe and request privacy for our family,” she added.

The cause of the fire is yet to be investigated. It does not appear to be suspicious. Investigators believe the fire began in the rear left of the first floor, said Jake Wark, the spokesperson for the State Fire Marshal office.
