2 Fires from 1984
Updated On: Sep 08, 2009

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.


The first fire occurred at #129 Sycamore Street on July 28, 1984 (Gr.3 was working) 2 1/2 story dwelling with heavy fire conditions on 2nd floor extending to the third floor and roof area.
The second fire occurred at #54 Bonair Street on May 29, 1984 (Gr.1 was working) 2 1/2 story dwelling with rear of basement heavily involved spreading in walls to all floors. 17 year old occupant suffered smoke inhalation.
