SOUTHBOROUGH — A couple was displaced after a driver crashed into their house early Saturday morning, causing the vehicle to ignite in flames and spread throughout the dwelling.
While the home isn't a total loss, it sustained significant structural and fire damage to the front half of the house and fire damage on the first and second floors, according to Fire Chief Steven Achilles.
"They won't be able to live there for a while," he said of the married couple.
He said police are investigating the cause of the crash.
Just before 1:30 a.m., Southborough Fire and Police departments responded to the motor-vehicle crash at 89 Framingham Road, Achilles said.
Upon arrival, crews found a red vehicle engulfed in flames, with the fire extending into the first and second floors of the home, Achilles said.
The couple escaped shortly after the crash without injury.
The driver and passenger suffered serious injuries and were taken by ambulances to a hospital, he said. The Marlborough and Westborough fire departments provided mutual aid.
The fire was under control within 30 minutes.
