“It was a lot of heavy fire on arrival, it was actually a second alarm that was transmitted upon arrival. So the units came in, there were some water issues in the beginning so that kind of worked against us and it quickly went to a third alarm,” Assistant Chief Tom Currao said.
There was a 57-year-old guy dead inside the collapsed part of one of the homes when firefighters got there. Authorities say one fireman got some minor injuries. The fire’s cause is still being looked into.
