Acton Fire got a call for some kind of outside fire. Due to the Rescue being out of quarters and being down 2 ffs the officer in charge went to investigate in the car. On arrival he quickly called for the 1st alarm assignment with an outside up against the garage. I believe their is only 7 on duty in town. The fire made its way up into the attic and Firefighters made an aggressive attack being short handed until mutual aid could arrive. They were able to contain the blaze before it could do further damage. Mutual aid came from Littleton, Maynard, Westford, Ayer and Concord.
