MILLBURY — A firefighter taken to the hospital from a fire at a three-decker on Waters Street on Sunday morning, “is reported to be doing well.”
The Millbury Fire Department was conducting ice rescue training when a call came in at 9:50 a.m. for a fire at 17 Waters St., according to a post on the the Fire Department’s Facebook page.
Firefighters arrived to find heavy fire showing from the rear porches of a three-decker.
All occupants escaped safely with the help of passersby, the Fire Department said.
The working fire call also brought in crews from Sutton, while Grafton and Auburn provided station coverage.
“An aggressive attack from outside the rear porches and also from inside, knocked down the fire quickly,” Millbury Fire said in the post. “It appears the fire started from an outside porch and traveled into the attic and the third-floor apartment.”
A Sutton firefighter was taken by ambulance to the hospital with breathing issues and chest discomfort, the Fire Department said and, “he is reported to be doing well.”
All occupants of the building were displaced and one is being assisted by the Red Cross, the Fire Department said.
