Webster MA - 3 Alarm Structure fire; 37 Granite St. - December 28, 2015

At approximately 12:50 hrs. on Monday December 28th, Webster firefighters responded to a structure fire located at 37 Granite Street. The fire apparently started on the first floor of the three-story balloon frame multi-family dwelling and raced throughout the structure. Before firefighters arrived, three Webster police officers entered the building to evacuate residents. They found an elderly female resident, unconscious in her apartment, and removed her to the outside. They placed themselves at great personal risk to effect the rescue.

As the fire raced upward, a propane fired grill was engulfed on the 2nd floor porch, activating the tank's relief valve which spewed large amounts of propane vapor into the fast moving fire. Both the 2nd and 1st floor porches collapsed shortly into the incident, narrowly missing three firefighters who were attempting to enter the structure.

Firefighters from several towns assisted at the scene. They included the Dudley, Oxford, Southbridge, Douglas, and Thompson (CT) Fire Departments.
