This early morning fire struck again for the 3rd time in just about a year. This vacant dwelling on South Street which is rather large and cut up inside, on a steep incline on the street, caused the fire to go to 3 alarms. Firefighters could see the glow coming from the firehouse. On arrival heavy fire was venting out the rear of the structure. The fire was making headway up into the attic space but firefighters made an aggressive attack on the top floor knocking down the spread of the fire.
One Leominster Firefighter was sent to the hospital with heat exhaustion and was treated and released.
Leominster Fire sent an Engine and Ladder to the fire along with an Engine from Westminster.
