On Thanksgiving Day, 11/22/2018, the Lowell Fire Department (MA) was dispatched to a reported structure fire in the Highlands neighborhood of the city. First-due companies had fire showing in a two-and-a-half story, wood-frame building and quickly called for the second alarm due to the progress of the fire and exposure issues. Two exposures eventually became involved because of their proximity to the original fire building and windy conditions. A third alarm was later struck. Companies, in addition to the wind, dealt with temperatures near the single digits and icy roads.
