Firehouse

January 2013

Firefighters battled a six-alarm fire involving a dairy farm in Lancaster, MA. Crews were able to contain the fire before it could spread to a slaughterhouse. Units from 23 communities were called to fight the fire and a tanker task force was also called. A lack of hydrants in the rural community hampered firefighting operations. The smoke was visible more than 15 miles away. The farm was open and working at the time of the fire, which fire occurred on Nov. 10, 2012. Cover photo by Scott LaPrade/SmokeShowingPhotography.com
