Hubbardston, MA - Hubbardston Firefighters were dispatched to a reported building fire on February 13th. Rutland Regional Dispatch received calls for a building fire on Abernaki Street around 11:00 P.M. This was the end of a busy day for firefighters, as they had already worked two building fires earlier in the day.
Police arrived and reported heavy fire showing and a working fire was struck. Engine 1 arrived minutes later and reported heavy fire showing from a two-story home. A second-alarm was immediately struck due to fire conditions and being out of the hydrant district.
Mutual aid from several towns responded along with multiple tankers. Crews worked for over two hours with heavy fire conditions and poor water pressure to get this fire under control. A third-alarm was struck with a special call for two additional tankers. Once a water supply was established and tankers were moving water, the fire was able to be brought under control.
