On Saturday May 28 at 6:13 p.m. the Brewster Fire Department was requested to respond to a 3rd alarm fire involving several restaurants on Commercial Street in Provincetown (see photos). Brewster Engine 234 responded to the scene and assisted with fire suppression operations throughout the incident. Ladder 237 also responded to the scene but remained in staging unable to set up due to the narrow downtown streets around the fire scene being congested with operating fire apparatus and other equipment. In addition, with several Chiefs from the Lower Cape operating at the fire scene in Provincetown and unable to respond to incidents in their respective communities Brewster Deputy Chief Kevin Varley was assigned to cover Wellfleet and the surrounding Towns for the duration of the incident. All Brewster units were returned to service at 11:08 p.m.
