PEPPERELL, MA - On April 17th, Pepperell Fire was dispatched to 179 Brookline Street for a reported building fire. Upon arrival of the first-in company, heavy smoke and fire was showing from a two-story wood-frame with a single-story “L” style addition. A working fire was transmitted followed by the second-alarm about one minute later. Companies ran multiple hand lines and set up the Pepperell Ladder. Mutual aid engines from Townsend, Groton, Dunstable, and Nashua operated at the scene. A Hollis Tower also responded to the scene. Companies had the fire knocked down in about 30 minutes and remained on scene for an extensive time to overhaul. A single occupant escaped the fire prior to fire department arrival and refused transport.
