“He went home this afternoon and he appears to be okay” Saugus Fire Chief Don McQuaid said Friday evening. “They were working really, really hard and may have been dehydrated and got some dizziness.”
Firefighters responded to a fire at a home at 63 Converse Ave., Malden at 5:32 a.m. and found a family of seven waiting outside. A third alarm brought firefighters from Saugus, Revere and other communities into action. The Saugus firefighter was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital. There were no other injuries reported.
