Two-story building in Lynn, Massachusetts catches fire
Wednesday, August 3, 2005
The fire was finally put out, however, some portions of the structure did reignite with small flames. Firefighters climbed onto the roof and began tearing it open in order to find the source of the ignition. A ladder truck also sprayed down the roof.
According to a witness, the roof was a tarred double roof, which may have been a factor that caused the fire to be so troublesome.
The first floor consisted of storefronts for a convenience store and a video store. The second floor held apartments.
