Three Alarms Struck for Bolton Farmhouse Fire

This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Bolton, MA - The Bolton Fire Department was dispatched for a structure fire at 49 Sawyer Road on January 15th. A police officer arrived minutes later and reported a large two-and-a-half story farmhouse with fire showing.

A working fire assignment was requested, as well as tankers from surrounding towns. First arriving companies stretched multiple one-and-three-quarter inch attack lines. Three alarms were eventually struck, bringing in multiple mutual aid companies to assist in fighting the fire.

This neighborhood doesn’t have hydrants, so water was supplied by tankers and a nearby pond. The residents were not home at the time, and one dog was rescued from the house.

No injuries were reported and the cause is under investigation.
