Posted: Updated:
WESTFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

We have new details on the Westfield fire that displaced dozens of tenants Monday night.

Officials told CBS 3 a burner on an electric stove was left on by accident and caused nearby materials to catch on fire.

The fire caused more than $1 million in damage to the Washington House Apartments.

The Westfield Housing Authority told CBS 3 that 33 of the 56 tenants are being allowed back into their homes. Other apartments are taking longer to fix.
