Heavy fire vents from the third floor
Fall River, Ma. On Friday evening January 10th at 8:30 pm. firefighters responded to 159 Fourth Street on a still alarm.
Car 2 arrived moments after dispatch and reported he had a working fire in a three story wood frame with heavy fire in the basement.
Members made an aggressive attack on all three floors with fire traveling the balloon frame construction all the way to the attic space. Shortly after, command ordered an evacuation, when heavy fire took over the third floor and tactics were changed to the exterior.
Command ordered two "Blitzfire" appliances to cover the B and D sides and a two and one half inch hand line brought to the C side, rear.
After knocking down the heavy fire command resumed interior operations. This incident went to two alarms and the Red Cross was called in to assist the three displaced families.
The fire investigation unit was called in to begin origin and cause determination and Special Services provided scene lighting and rehab to fire personnel. The building was considered a total loss.
