From FirstDuePhotos' Channel on YouTube a bit of a unique view from a four-alarm fire on February 12th in Boston, Massachusetts. Ted Pendergast rolled video with a wide angle lens as he shot still pictures of the fire in a row of businesses at Chestnut Hill Avenue and Embassy Road. The fire was report around 5:40 AM.
The fire is believed to have started inside the pizza restaurant Bocca Buona and spread to the other businesses in the strip: Ora Catering, Village Laundry, and S&K Janitorial Supplies.
MacDonald said firefighters – about 120 responded – used millions of gallons of water, much of which quickly turned to ice on one of this winter’s few frigid days so far. The mercury read 14 degrees when crews responded. It never climbed above the high 20s.
At times, the water pressure waned and pump trucks had to connect to hydrants on side streets.
