LAWRENCE, MA - On December 30, 2021, Lawrence firefighters arrived to find heavy fire showing from a large two-and-a-half story wood-frame on Abbott Street.

The fire was starting to extend to the 'Bravo' exposure and Car 21 quickly struck a second-alarm. Crews stretched big lines and kept the fire from getting into the exposure building. Companies remained defensive until the main body of fire was knocked down. Command struck a third-alarm, bringing in more manpower to the scene and to cover the city.

Companies reentered the building to finish knocking down the fire and remained on scene for several hours overhauling and checking for hot spots.
