The Framingham Fire Department dispatched a first alarm assignment to 10 Stanley Drive for a reported house fire on Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 2:45 pm. Engine 1 arrived and reported a fully involved split level dwelling. A second alarm was requested bringing an additional two engines and a ladder to the fire. Mutual aid was brought in to cover and a Southborough engine went to the scene. First due companies used a deck gun to knock down the heavy fire. Hand lines were stretched and crews attempted to knock down the fire from the outside. There was a delay in getting the gas shut down due to a frozen shut off valve in the street resulting in at least one explosion. The fire wasn’t completely extinguished until a few hours into the incident. The building was deemed unsafe due to the heavy damage caused by the blaze. One firefighter did suffer a minor injury. Crews returned to the scene 24 hours later for a reignition on the A/B corner of the second floor. Platform 1 used the master stream when firefighters were ordered to stay out of the building. The cause is under investigation.
