In the mid afternoon heard alot of chatter on the scanner. A fire in the Town of Bolton with alot of mutual aid moving up and too the fire. I left right away and on my arrival fire was burning along the eves of the home when the loss of water happened. <p> As firefighters worked extremely hard to get more water the fire took off burning right through the garage and was threatening a 5th wheel trailer in the driveway. The fire quickly took full control of the 2 1/2 story wood barn with autos inside. The fire was so intense that the light bar on Hudson&#39;s Tower ladder melted and the front windshield shattered. <p> Firefighters were able to make a stop about half way through the house. A few firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion as the temps were in the high 80&#39;s. <p>Mutual aid from Hudson, Berlin, Marlborough, Stow, Boxborough, Lancaster, Maynard, Harvard were at the fire along with the State Fire Academy re-hab truck. Other local departments (Leominster 1st time since 1965) and Sterling went to the fire and Devens covered the firehouse. <p> The house was built in 1725
