Arriving crews reported heavy fire from a 2 1/2-story wood frame at 5 Walden Avenue. An extra two engines and one ladder were called for, followed shortly by the balance of the second alarm.

High winds helped spread the blaze to adjoining structures at 1 and 3 Walden Avenue. Firefighters fought the fire defensively using three tower ladders, three Blitz Fire nozzles, and four 2 1/2-inch handlines.

An excavator was brought to assist in overhaul. Damage was set at $250,000. The cause is under investigation.
