Video: Worcester Firefighters Battle Stubborn Triple Decker Fire that Leaves 19 Homeless

Around 5:30pm, firefighters were called to this Henchman Terrace house for a reported structure fire. Upon arrival, the 3rd floor was fully involved. A 2nd then a quick 3rd alarm were transmitted.

Interior crews had to back out and go to exterior operations as conditions deteriorated and the fire tore through the roof.

Besides the house being at the end of a deadend street, frozen hydrants, ice and several feet of snow hampered firefighting efforts.

The fire was declared under control about 2 hours after the initial alarm.
