The home of Alexander Warren, the son of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), was lost in an early Tuesday morning fire.
According to WFXT Boston 25 News, a neighbor reported the Medford, Massachusetts, home “engulfed in flames” at 1:19 a.m.
First responders from several fire departments worked through the night to bring the blaze under control.
Local news station WFXT correspondent Julianne Lima shared that the home’s hillside location created water pressure issues for firefighters.
“Neighbors living nearby say they had to evacuate their homes, but firefighters kept the flames from spreading,” she said on Twitter.
Local media noted that no one was home during the fire and no injuries were reported. Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
The Western Journal reported Alexander Warren, Sen. Warren’s youngest child, owns the house. Public records show Alexander paid $1.35 million for the property in April 2021.
Sen. Warren visited the property on Tuesday morning and thanked first responders for their efforts to save the home and keep the fire from spreading:
“I deeply appreciate the efforts of the firefighters who worked through the night to put out a fire at our son’s house,” Warren said. “I am grateful that everyone is safe and request privacy for our family.”
WFXT reported that the home, which had been undergoing renovation work over the last 12 months, is a total loss.
