Boston Fire Box 232, 04/17/2020

In the afternoon of April 17th, 2020 at approximately 17:15 hours Boston Fire struck Box 232 for the reported structure fire. The Brookline Fire Department also responded. First arriving companies on Ladder 26 assumed command and reported smoke showing from the roof, they immediately moved to a fast attack. Companies arriving after began investigating a reported a heavy smoke condition in the basement, and quickly located the source. The cause is believed to be a delayed ignition. Luckily today there was no real fire, however it is a reminder of the quick response and professionalism of our city’s great men and women of the Fire Department who respond to the calls for help even during this pandemic. Thank you from all of us
