This week took an unfortunate turn with multiple large fires in various towns north of Boston. I listen to a police and fire scanner when I'm home and just as I was about to take a shower I heard a call come in for a fully involved house fire in Beverly. I quickly grabbed my gear and headed to the scene. I arrived just as firefighters were laying out a hose line to a fire hydrant. Everyone made it out of the house safely and firefighters were able to extinguish the flames. More photos can be seen at Wicked Local Beverly.
This fire happened in Malden the following morning. I just arrived at my first assignment when I saw a text message alerting me to a 2-alarm fire in Malden. I wasn't far away but I had to photograph my first assignment, edit it and send it to the editor because I was on deadline. After quickly editing photos in my car and sending images to my editor I headed to the fire which at this point had turned into 3-alarms. When I finally got to the scene firefighters were mostly overhauling the building. I only had a short time to photograph the scene because I had another assignment I needed to get to.
