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

PLYMOUTH, MA - On the morning of February 10th at 5:24 A.M., Engines 3, 4 and 6, along with BC3 were dispatched to 41 Post N’ Rail Ave. for a building fire. The call originated from Life Alert stating occupants were choking on smoke.

While en route, the occupants called stating that their house was full of smoke. Engine 6 laid in a two-inch line from Long Pond (rural water supply/out of water district) and signed off with fire showing. BC3 immediately struck a working fire and added Engine 5 to the assignment. E4 finished the lay out upon arrival and companies began stretching two lines. Companies also rescued one occupant upon arrival and requested two ambulances.

At 5:53 A.M., BC3 struck a second-alarm equivalent on Box 15, bringing Engine 8, Tanker 1 and Tanker 3 to the scene. Companies cut vent holes in the roof on the 'Alpha' side and had heavy fire in the attic. Companies pulled from interior operations to set up their lines on side 'A' and 'D'.

Companies on scene operated for several hours before the fire was fully brought under control. Recalled members and Carver/Bourne Fire covered the town during that time. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
