Chief Eric Smith reports that the Gloucester Fire Department responded to and extinguished a structure fire on Harvard Street on Friday afternoon.
On Friday, Feb. 10, at approximately 4:25 p.m., the Gloucester Fire Department received multiple 911 calls reporting smoke coming from a home at 10 Harvard St.
Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Rescue 1, Ladder 1, and Car 3 responded and arrived at the scene within minutes. Crews arrived to find a working fire burning under a porch of the home and quickly worked to get water on it.
The fire was knocked down by 4:37 p.m.
The origin and cause of the fire remains under investigation. There were no reported injuries. Damage was contained the home’s porch.
The Essex Fire Department covered Gloucester stations during the fire.
“Crews responded and knocked this fire down quickly, which is fortunate because gusty winds today could have made this fire grow rapidly if our response had not been as timely,” said Chief Smith.
