This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

Fall River, Ma. On Sunday morning, July 24th. firefighters were called out at 11:00 am to respond to 19 Norfolk Street for report of fire. Platform 1 came on air and reported smoke showing on approach. Engines 2, 6, and 12 along with Platform 1, Ladder 4 and Heavy Rescue 1 responded on the initial alarm. When Car 2 arrived on scene he declared a working fire and called for a second alarm. Temperatures were in the low ninety's and command called for Special Services to respond with their Rehab apparatus to set up a rehab area with cold drinks, wet towels, and cool mist fans to provide some relief to overheated firefighters. Command eventually called for a third alarm to relieve exhausted firefighters. Several pets perished in this fire, and the local fire investigative team called in the State fire investigators to assist with origin and cause.
