Fall River, MA - Around 8:15 P.M. on Friday night, May 1st, firefighters responded to 160 Brayton Avenue for a still alarm. Engine 4 arrived first and reported smoke showing from the eaves. Two attack lines were stretched to the second floor to find the seat of the fire. Ladder 2 put the aerial ladder into operation to access the roof, while ground ladders were used to reach the second floor windows. All visible fire was knocked down quickly, but this fire required extensive overhaul, as flames made their way into the attic space and ceilings. Seven people were displaced. Engines 2, 4 and 5, Ladders 2 and 4, Rescue 1 and Car 3 responded.
