LOWELL, MA - Lowell firefighters battled a multiple-alarm fire on Westford Street on the morning of June 4th.

Companies arrived to find smoke showing and quickly stretched lines into the building where they encountered heavy smoke and fire conditions in the first floor store that was extending up. Command struck a second-alarm, bringing in more companies. Firefighters found extension into the cockloft and command struck a third-alarm, bringing in mutual aid to the scene. A fourth-alarm for manpower purposes was struck shortly after.

Crews were eventually drawn out of the building due to deteriorating conditions. Once the heavy fire was knocked down, companies reentered and continued to hit the fire. Crews remained on scene for several hours chasing hot spots.
