Chief John Grant, Milton: Counting the true cost of fire

from Wicked Local Milton 

Last week, Massachusetts lost three residents to fire. Two young boys, 4- and 9-years-old, died in a fatal blaze in a six-bedroom multi-family home in Lawrence after becoming trapped in their third-floor bedroom. Neighbors and family members were unable to reach them and the fire spread too quickly for firefighters to save them. (Read the full story here.)
