    Another great effort by the best fire department around. From the photo you can see that the structure was saved and will be repaired and lived in again.

    One of the distinguishing marks of the Somerville Fire Department is that they are an aggressive “inside” fire department. The SFD personnel go inside and attack the fire at it’s source to eliminate the fire from going throughout the entire structure.

    Some departments have to fight the fire from outside due to lack of manpower and other resources. The Somerville Fire Department will always be there for you-please be there for them.
