PLYMOUTH, MA - At 11:03 P.M. on April 12th, Plymouth Engines 1 and 2, Tower 1, Ladder 3, and BC1 were dispatched to 3 Stephens St. for a building fire. With this location being within walking distance of Station 1, companies had a quick response time. Engine 1 signed off with smoke showing from the second floor of a 50'x30' two-and-a-half story, wood-frame, multi-family structure, and had Tower 1 make entry from the 'C' side. Engine 2 laid a four-inch line from a hydrant upon their arrival. The fire had self-vented as crews were making entry. Engines 1 and 2 made an aggressive interior attack along with Tower 1. At 11:14 P.M., Battalion 1 struck Box 14 for group 2 for a working fire assignment, bringing Carver and Kingston for Mutual Aid, and Engine 5 for R.I.T., as well as Rescue 1 for manpower. Eventually, the Kingston Engine was brought to the scene. All companies remained on scene and working for several hours. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
