Boy, if this was a Two-Alarm Fire…Long Beach Road the morning after

Reports were that two houses in Gloucester were on fire which is understandable as there was a beautiful attached in-law suite for this local family. Last evening’s sights, crunching sounds and smells were ferocious. The homeowners are safe. Firefighters and emergency personnel faced that challenging inferno and are ok. The house was deemed a total loss. Cape Ann Motor Inn at Long Beach provided shelter.

Here’s the link to Arianna MacNeill’s swift and fine reporting for the Gloucester Daily Times  Two-Alarm Fire Ravages Gloucester home.
