CAMBRIDGE, MA - Cambridge firefighters battled their second fire of the day on Easter Sunday, April 9th, at a church on Broadway.

Companies arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the church and the Division Chief struck a second-alarm on arrival. Companies made an aggressive interior attack with big lines into the church where they encountered heavy fire conditions. Crews were drawn back due to the fire conditions inside, and operated at a defensive position.

Command struck the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth alarms, bringing in mutual aid to the city and to the fire scene. Companies remained on scene for several hours overhauling.
