A large building was gutted by an early morning fire in the center of town in Franklin, MA. A second alarm was called shortly after companies arrived on scene to find a fully involved structure on Dean Avenue near Dean College. Quickly, the fire had reached 5 alarms with around 100 firefighters on scene, many on mutual aid from surrounding communities. At one point, at least 5 ladder companies were set up around the building, all soaking the fire from above while crews also worked on the ground to protect exposures. Smoke billowed through the area into the daylight hours. No injuries were reported as of early Friday morning.
