House Fire Video: Exterior Operations at Hudson House Fire

Video by: CMassfirebuff. Video info: The Hudson fire department was dispatched to 19 Lakeshore Dr for a reported house fire on 3/22/13 at 4:40 AM. Companies arrived to find heavy fire showing from a two story occupied dwelling. A second alarm was struck followed by a third alarm to get mutual aid companies to the scene. A lack of available water in the area was a factor in gaining control of the fire as the first due companies were backed out of the building due to worsening conditions. A Marlborough engine arrived and established a water supply from a hydrant on Hosmer St in Marlborough, which supplied additional water to the scene. Four hand lines were stretched to knock down the bulk of the fire from the outside. Once it was determined to be safe, crews were allowed to reenter the building to search for remaining hot spots. Companies remained at the scene into the morning overhauling. Mutual aid came from Marlborough, Berlin and Stow with Bolton, and Sudbury covering the Hudson stations.
