Sandwich fire and police personnel attend to an injured
firefighter behind a large home in the Ridge Club in South Sandwich
during a three alarm fire on Memorial Day, May 31, 2010 shortly after 1235 hours. First in firefighters had heavy smoke and
fire conditions on side C on arrival. During entry, an explosion, possibly a back draft, injured two firefighters and caused
some severe structural damage to the home. Several other firefighters narrowly escaped injuries during the explosion.
Mutual aid fire and EMS units responded to the three alarm fire from several communities across the upper Cape area.
The fire did extensive damage to the large two story home.
