WAKEFIELD, MA - Wakefield fire companies were dispatched on April 18th to 191 Albion Street, at a popular local pizza and sandwich shop, for a reported fire. Upon arrival at “Pizza Express”, companies had smoke showing and a second-alarm was ordered. Companies stretched multiple hand lines and began to open up, finding a large volume of fire above the drop ceiling. As companies opened up and conditions worsened, a third-alarm was ordered. Wakefield and mutual aid companies were able to open up confined spaces and extinguish the fire in the shop. Additionally, propane tanks from a neighboring 7 Eleven gas station were moved away from the fire building. Companies had the fire knocked down and overhauled in under one hour.
