On 7/27/2020, Quincy Fire Alarm dispatched companies to a reported fire in the rear of a home on Hanna Street. On arrival companies found the entire rear of the building on fire with flames threatening exposures. A second alarm was struck immediately, bringing additional Quincy companies to the scene. Crews fought the fire defensively and requested a third and eventually a fourth alarm due to the location of the fire building and heat index which was hovering around 100 degrees. Milton, Boston, and Braintree provided assistance at the scene. More photos can be found here:
