Hudson Fire 

It prevented a fire from being worse than it was.

The Clark residence on the Berry Pit Road caught fire.

It happened around nine Monday morning.

No one was home. Firefighters rescued a cat and a dog, another cat is missing.

While the house is still standing, there’s a lot of damage inside.

Investigators are searching for cause.

Hudson firefighters were assisted at the scene by crews from Bradford, Corinth, Glenburn and Kenduskeag.
