Multiple Gas-Related Explosions, Fires Reported in Massachusetts
Emergency crews are responding to reports of multiple gas-related explosions and fires in three communities in the Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts on Thursday afternoon.
NBC10 Boston helicopter footage showed more than six houses smoking or in flames across the region, with a massive response from firefighters and police amid a problem with a gas line that feeds homes in Andover, North Andover and Lawrence. Andover fire officials said they struck a 10-alarm response, its maximum traditional fire response. More than 50 fire vehicles and 10 ambulances responded to the scene.
Massachusetts State Police said they have confirmed responses to 39 different addresses in the three communities for fires, explosions or investigations, and said the number will grow. They said troopers are assisting with scene security and traffic control after “multiple suspected gas explosions and structure fires.”
One home could be seen burning to the ground with no firefighters in sight as emergency crews scrambled to respond to the various scenes.
