DXFD responded to Hanover's 3rd alarm fire early this morning.On July 8, 2020, at 2:07 am, the Hanover Fire Department received a call reporting smoke in the area of Columbia Road and Rockland Street with a possible outside fire in the rear of a commercial occupancy. Engine 7, Tower 1 and Ambulance 3 responded to investigate. While enroute, Hanover Police Officers arrived and reported a possible outside equipment fire at 183 Columbia Road with smoke in the building. Box 42 was transmitted and a full 1st Alarm Assignment was dispatched. First arriving crews found thick black smoke coming from the front of an 85 x 50 two story commercial office building with heavy fire conditions in the rear. Firefighters were unable to make an interior attack and were forced to initiate a defensive and exterior operation as heavy fire rapidly traveled throughout the structure.

Three Alarms were necessary to bring the fire under control. Mutual Aid assistance from Rockland, Norwell, Pembroke, Hanson, Hingham, Abington, Whitman, Marshfield, Duxbury and South Shore Hospital EMS responded to the incident scene. Support units from the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services and the Providence Canteen also responded to the incident. The Hanover Police and Public Works Departments also assisted on scene. The Hanover Emergency Communications Center coordinated incident communications and requests for mutual aid.

Officials from the Hanover Building Department determined that the remaining structure was unsafe and had to be taken down in the interest of public safety.

The fire remains under investigation by the Hanover Fire and Police Joint Fire Investigation Unit along with the Massachusetts State Police Fire Investigators assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

One firefighter who sustained minor injuries during the incident was evaluated and treated on-scene.

Firefighters cleared the scene at 1:36 pm.

Just before 2am this morning, the KFD was alerted to a structure fire with the report of occupants trapped. With the duty shift already responding to a motor vehicle accident (MVA), off duty personnel were called in and mutual aid requested. With no injuries at the MVA, responders were diverted to the fire. Upon arrival it was discovered that several occupants were assisted from the home and one occupant was rescued from the fire room by an off duty Kingston Firefighter who lives in the neighborhood and responded from home. He was also able to extinguish the fire which was in a bedroom. Three people were transported to the BI Plymouth with minor smoke inhalation: two by KFD Ambulance and a third by Duxbury FD Ambulance. Duxbury also provided and Engine to assist at the fire scene. Plymouth FD provided an Engine to cover the empty Kingston stations which responded to subsequent calls while KFD units were tied up. Thanks to #KPD, #Plymouthsherrifs,#DXFD, and #PlymouthFD for the assistance. Photo courtesy of #DXFDPIO. ... See MoreSee Less
