FALL RIVER, MA - Around 11:15 P.M. on Friday night, November 10th, firefighters responded to a still alarm at 87 Reed Street. Engines 2, 6 and 12, along with Platform1, Ladder 4 and Heavy Rescue 1 responded. Engine 12 reported flames showing from their station house. Car 2 arrived on scene and declared a working fire. Heavy fire was showing from the rear of a vacant two-story, wood-frame. Crews quickly knocked down the exterior fire, then repositioned attack lines to the first and second floors. Fire had entered the second-floor and attic and was also extinguished. Members then began overhaul. The City Fire Marshal was called to the scene to begin the investigation and he in turn notified the State Fire Marshal to assist in the origin and cause investigation.
