Box 291 was struck on October 16, 2009 (Group 2 working) for a building fire at 14 Horace Street. Firefighters arrived to find a 1 1/2 story warehouse on the Harding Street side of the property heavily charged with smoke with fire showing from the "C-D" corner of the building and extending into the roof area. Firefighters forced entry into the building and an aggressive interior attack confined the fire to this area of the building. The box was transmitted at 1605 hrs followed by a Second Alarm on orders of D/C Lucia at 1612 hours.  (Photos below by Capt. Charlie Breen)
