At approximately 1750 hrs we heard the dispatch for a fire at 75 Falulah St. While on my way which is about 2 miles from my house, I heard Tower Ladder 3 report smoke showing from a distance and he was right for I could see it just leaving my home. On arrival heavy smoke was pouring from the front of this 2 story home with heavy fire out the back. The fire was just starting to burn the other home behind it.<p>The 2nd alarm was quickly struck bring and Engine and Ladder from Leominster directly to the fire. The fire had a good head start which the brothers made a great attempt on an interior attack but had to withdraw. The roof then collapsed into the top floor and the fire began to take over.<p>It took firefighters about 90 minutes to bring this stubborn blaze under control. Six people were left homeless and it is unknown what started the blaze.
