The Wellesley Fire Department is responding to a house fire on Allen Road, according to unconfirmed reports.
Initial reports claimed that a fire had struck within the walls of the home, and was declared a working fire minutes later at around 3:40 p.m. Monday.
"When crews arrived on scene they had a smoke condition and they found apparently a fire in the ceiling," said Wellesley Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Peterson. "To my knowledge the fire has been extinquished."
Wellesley Patch will provide more information as it becomes available. Stephen Walsh contributed to this report.
