LOWELL, MA - The Lowell fire alarm office began receiving calls for a structure fire on School St. on April 4th.

E2 arrived on scene with heavy fire showing from floor three of a three-story wood-frame. Crews stretched lines to the third floor to knock down the fire and found heavy fire in the cockloft. Command ordered a second-alarm, bringing in mutual aid to the city and ordered crews to begin a defensive operation.

After a short time going defensive, crews reentered and knocked down the fire in the cockloft and third floor. Crews remained on scene overhauling and checking for extension.
