  • Vacant structure fire, Marlborough, MA

    An early morning fire heavily damaged the building that previously housed the Seymour Oil Company. On arrival firefighters found the building, located at 72 Jeffereson Street fully involved. Three Engine companies, a Ladder company and a Rescue company responded. Off duty personnel were recalled for additional manpower to the scene and to man the Department’s reserve apparatus. SuthbOtough Fire sent an Engine company to cover Marlborough Station 2.

    It took Firefighters approximately 30 minutes using several hand lines and an aerial ladder master stream to knock down the fire, which was contained to the 1 story storage building. Firefighters remained on the scene for over five hours overhauling and looking for hidden pockets of fire in the walls and debris and investigating the point of origin.

    This was the 8th working fire that Fire Chief David Adams has commanded since taking over the reins of the Marlborough Fire Department in August.

    The Marlborough Fire Department’s Fire Investigation Unit and the Office of the State Fire Marshal have determined after an investigation that the building fire on the morning of November 3, 2005 at the former Seymour Oil Company property on Jefferson Street was deliberately set. The building is presently owned by the City of Marlborough.
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
