ROCKLAND, MASSACHUSETTS (PLYMOUTH COUNTY) - Around 1230 hours on the afternoon of Tuesday, January 4, 2022 the Rockland Fire Department responded to 361 West Pleasant Street for a reported building fire. Companies arrived to find fire and smoke showing from a garage attached to a 1-story occupied dwelling.

A working fire was requested upon arrival, bringing mutual aid to the scene and to cover. Upon the arrival of Deputy Chief Thomas Heaney, a second alarm was struck. Companies stretched multiple hand lines and were able to get the heavy body of fire knocked down. Inside the garage, the fire involved a car, boat and other pieces of equipment.

While the house suffered heat and smoke damage throughout, the fire was primarily held to the garage area. Mutual aid companies from Abington, Hanover, Hingham, Norwell and Whitman worked on-scene, while Holbrook covered the Rockland station. No injuries were reported.
