Wellesley firefighters, joined by those from Needham, Newton and Weston, had their hands full late Wednesday afternoon when dispatch reported a detached garage fire at 188 Washington S. near Oakland Street. Heavy fire was showing close to the primary home as well as nearby houses.
Unfortunately, the garage and a ’53 T Bird in it were lost, but no injuries were suffered. The building inspector and fire department determined that the issue was isolated to the garage and that the family can safely stay in the home.
Fire Chief Rick DeLorie credited Deputy Corda and Group D, as well as the neighboring firefighting squads, for a job well done protecting the town.
