LAWRENCE, MA - Lawrence firefighters were dispatched to a reported structure fire in the area of Bennington St. and Saratoga St. on April 4th. Crews had heavy smoke showing while leaving quarters. There was heavy fire showing between three buildings on arrival and three alarms were quickly struck. Crews made aggressive interior attacks on all three buildings, but were brought out to a defensive attack to knock down the main body of fire. After a short time crews shut down the ladder pipes and went back interior to finish chasing hot spots and overhaul. Multiple mutual aid companies came into the city to the fire and also to cover.
