On Monday January 28 at approximately 2:25 p.m. the Brewster Fire Department responded to the Town of Harwich on a line box assignment for a reported structure fire.  On arrival of the Harwich Fire Department heavy fire was found coming from the front and rear of the residence and a working fire (WF) assignment was requested by the Incident Commander.  Brewster Ladder 237 responded directly to the scene as the Rapid Intervention Team (RIT). An aggressive interior attack on the fire was initiated by the units at the scene resulting in the fire being placed under control about 20 minutes after arrival of the first fire department unit.  Brewster Engine 234 also responded to cover Harwich Fire Headquarters.  Please see the full story and photos attached.
