235 Main Street Second Alarm



On the evening of December 31, 2009 at 1919hrs Foxborough Fire & Rescue received what will be the last call for help of 2009 for a reported structure fire.  The resident reported it to be a basement fire at 235 Main Street and everyone was out of the house.  Engine 22 and Ladder 26 arrived to find a 2 1/2 story wood framed balloon type construction house with heavy smoke from the second floor and order the Working Fire assignment.  Heavy fire was found on the first and second floor, and due to heavy clutter in the home finding the seat of the fire became difficult.  Initial arriving companies found the stairs to the second floor beginning to burn out and access to the second floor was made via ground ladders.  Car 2 arrived and assumed command and quickly ordered the 2nd alarm, bringing engines from Sharon, Walpole, Wrentham, and a ladder from Norfolk, and tower from Mansfield.  Plainville Engine 3 was later called to the scene and Norfolk and North Attleborough engines covered the station.  A Sharon Ambulance was called to the scene to stand by.  Engine 21 was staffed with recall firefighters.  Access was difficult due to the house being set far back off of the street and a tight driveway.  There were initial water problems due to a frozen hydrant which was quickly resolved.  About 45 minutes into the incident command ordered defensive operations due to the fire load and fire volume.  It took approximately 90min to knock down the heavy fire and several hours to overhaul.  Parts of the second floor collapsed into the first floor.  The cause of the fire is under investigation, the house was heavily damaged and the homeowners were relocated with help of the Red Cross.
