Crazy fires in town!!

All I can say is holy ****. Last night around 6pm there was a 6 alarm fire in Gardner, where I live. 2 multi-story apartment houses went up. Gardner has gone thru quite a few budget cuts so there are only 6 firefighters on duty at a time.

If this wasn't crazy enough, tonight at 10pm there was another 5 alarm fire that gutted one 3 story apartment house and damaged another 3 story next to it. This is a small city of about 20,000 people and there hasn't been a major fire in a few years.

I'm waiting to find out the cause of the fires. I'm sure firehouse will have some info tomorrow morning and I'll post a link.

Here's a few pictures of the fire tonight. I didn't get any last night.

Lets all pray for those who lost their houses. Lets just be happy no lives were lost!!

Saw the Gardner stuff on the news last night. Those guys managed to keep everything in check until help arrived. No injuries or fatalities! Way to go Gardner FD!

Have you thought of supplementing the full time guys with a volunteer fire department? That is all we have out in the county.
