Fires reported on Second Street

By Aidan Sadovi, Staff Writer

Two fires, one starting from the other, were reported at Second and Washington streets and Second and Hill streets around 9 p.m. and extending into 10 p.m.

According to radio chatter, there was a gas leak and a firefighter spoke of downed power lines “everywhere,” in the area. 

The original building where the fire started may “have been a very large garage” according to radio chatter.

By 9:55, firefighters could apparently “smell natural gas.” 

Around 10:00, according to radio chatter, the house that was on fire was clear of people although it is unclear when the fire was extinguished. 

Two MTD buses were being allocated to Hill Street to be used for “rehab,” according to radio communication.
