Tyngsborough, MA - Tyngsborough firefighters responded to a house fire on Poitras Avenue on August 7th.

Companies arrived to heavy fire showing from an attached garage, which was extending into the main house. First arriving crews were able to rescue one occupant from the first floor window on arrival.

Command quickly requested more manpower and mutual aid was brought in from Nashua, Dunstable, Dracut, Chelmsford and Westford. Crews had to deal with no hydrants close by and relied on tanker shuttles.

Firefighters remained on scene for several hours chasing hot spots and overhauling.
