Two alarm fire in Marlborough
A two alarm fire ripped through an extebded family's home on Country Lane, casuing over $50,000 dollars in damage and rendering it uninhabitable.
The fire was discovered by a motorist who was driving down Farm Road who called 911 on his cell phone. The motorist then drove to the home and made sure that the residents were out.
The first alarm response was Marlborough Engine 3 (first due), Engine 1, Ladder 1, Rescue 1 and Car 1. The second alarm brought Engine 4 and Ladder 2 to the scene, with off duty personnel recalled to man reserve Engine 5. The Hudson and Southborough FD's sent mutual aid to cover at two of Marlborough's stations. The mutual aid companies were kept busy with numerous motor vehicle accidents. One Marlborough Firefighter was involved in an accident in his POV while responding to the recall at Headquarters, he was taken to Marlborough Hospital for evaluation.
Weather conditions (heavy snow changing to sleet and freezing rain) and water problems initially hampered the fire attack."The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

Is the brother that wrecked his POV en route alright?These are my opinions, not those of my career department, my volunteer company, or my affiliates. And by the way, I'm not a Junior.
Buy me a drink, sing me a song, take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.
