1986 - BOSTON Fires - firstduephotos

Sat., Sept. 27,1986 - Fire Alarm reported they were "Receiving Calls" for a fire in the alley of a building in Andrew Square at the intersection of Dorchester Avenue & Dexter St (South Boston). Companies had chased several trash fires in the area much of the evening. As misfortune would have it, the two first-due Engines and the first-due Truck (E39, 21 & L18) were all committed to other stills at the time the box was struck. District 6 arrived by himself and found a significant fire in the alley off Dexter St opposite the Andrew Square MBTA Station. He transmitted three alarms as the fire communicated to three buildings while he waited for the first companies to arrive. Five Alarms were transmitted on Box 7234 in total for this fire.
