During the 90's Fires in the City of Worcester where out of control during the 4th of July weekend. It was almost a Mini Detroit with all the burning. People would burn structures, and build large piles of furniture and trash and lite them. Some times while chasing calls or just driving around you would see large loom ups and weren't sure if it was a building or outside fires.
Worcester would also bring back an entire group and assign them to either spare equipment as well to pickup trucks and or the beefing up of all pieces.
This fire on Hollis St went out and I was about 1 block away. I beat the 1st due apparatus (Scope 3 as it was known) to the fire. Embers from this were out of control.
