Milford, MA - Firefighters arrived to find smoke showing from this 2.5sty wood frame occupied multiple apartment complex at 31 Pine Street on March 25, 2010. A third floor tenant needed to be rescued by Milford Ladder 1 due to the heavy smoke blocking his egress out of the structure. Heavy fire was showing from the side C-D corner first floor bedroom as firefighters readied themselves for battle. An aggressive interior attack commenced as other firefighters began to search the vast complex for occupants. The bulk of the fire was knocked down on the first floor but did extend upwards due to older construction and voids in the structure. The wind also hampered efforts as it blew through the now opened structure fanning the progress of the fire. Light smoke was now turning heavy as the fire was raging out of control in the upper floors and attic space. The ladder companies opened the roof line and were greated by high heat and fire as the roof was pushed in. Command then orderd the defensive exterior attack. Heavy fire was now venting out of control through the roof line. Milford Ladder 1 and Franklin Tower Ladder 1 operated their monitors into the attic knocking the bulk of the fire down in 30 minutes. Extensive overhauling efforts followed to find the hidden pockets of fire throughout this complex.
