09/14/2017 4th Alarm Weymouth MA

09/14/2017 - WEYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS (NORFOLK COUNTY) - Shortly before 0300 hours on the morning of Thursday, September 14, 2017 the Weymouth Fire Department responded to a reported building fire at 71 Trotter Road, in the Union Point development. Crews arrived to find heavy fire tearing through a large, 200' x 50', four-story condominium complex that was under construction. Companies experienced water problems and requested incoming companies to lay in. Crews had to stretch feeder lines over the MBTA commuter rail tracks in order to get a good water supply to battle the blaze in the condominium complex that was slated to open in about a months time. A second alarm was struck on-arrival, followed soon their after by third and fourth alarms. Companies utilized deck guns and ladder pipes to protect the exposures and knock down the heavy fire conditions, which tore through the roof. Mutual aid companies from Quincy, Braintree, Rockland, Avon, Hull, Hingham, Holbrook and Stoughton all worked on the scene to knock down the fire. Companies continued to pour water on the complex throughout the day. Paths were dug under the commuter rail lines so that feeder lines wouldn't interfere with the MBTA's operation. This fire is one of several which destroyed buildings that were under construction in Massachusetts this year. Earlier in the year fires in Boston and Waltham destroyed residential building projects that were not yet completed. The cause of the blaze is under investigation and no injuries were reported.
