2nd Alarm - #19 Linden Ave 3/15/83
Updated On: Dec 03, 2008

This 2nd Alarm fire took place at #19 Linden Avenue on March 15, 1983.   Group 3 was working.  This 2 1/2 story dwelling had been vacant for many years. Fire started on 2nd floor & extended throughout the 2nd & 3rd floors & through the roof.  302 was Deputy Chief Lou Crescentini & 303 was District Chief John Gover.

These audio files are from tapes that were used in a voice activated recorder. Prior to Somerville Fire going to a UHF frequency, they operated without a repeater. Therefore some of the radio traffic was not picked by the voice activated recorder. These and future files have also been edited to remove some of the dead air that would take up alot of time. These files reflect the busiest time on the Somerville Fire Department for fires.

Note: You will need to have Quick Time Player installed on your computer to listed to the Audio Files.  If you do not have Quick Time Player and would like to download it for free CLICK HERE

*Because of the size of these files, it may take a minute or so before the audio starts playing.*

For reference, "301" was the Chief of the Department.  "302" and "303" were Chief Officers - referred to as "C-2" and "C-3" present day.
