Fall River, MA - On Sunday afternoon, December 6th, firefighters responded to 35 Abbott Place, a narrow dead end street in the city's south end, for reports of a fire. Firefighters had smoke showing on arrival that Command said smelled like wire insulation burning.

Engines 2, 4 and 5, along with Ladders 2 and 4, Heavy Rescue 1, and Car 3 responded. Engine 4 began fire attack and quickly knocked down all visible flames, then went to work opening up the walls to find the hidden fire.

Firefighters made extensive use of thermal imaging cameras to expose the fire.
