WATERTOWN, MA - On Sunday, September 5th just before midnight, Watertown responded to a fire in a large balloon frame dwelling in a tight neighborhood at 143 Spruce Street. Crews worked against heavy fire conditions in the top floor. After some time working inside, heavy fire drove companies out and everyone was pulled from the building. Fire came through the roof and was knocked down by the ladder pipe out front. Crews returned to the third floor for extensive overhaul.
