Fall River, MA - Around 11:30 A.M. on January 4th, firefighters responded to 120 Crane Street for some type of fire reported (unknown due to a language barrier). When firefighters arrived they were met with a light smoke condition showing on the exterior. Police Officers had evacuated the home before firefighters' arrival. Members laid an attack line to the basement where they were confronted with a dryer fire, and quickly extinguished it. The fire produced a heavy smoke condition throughout the home. Members of the Ladder crew set up smoke ejectors to clear the home of the remaining smoke.
