Firefighters Tear Apart Wrong House

‘The Braintree Fire Department is investigating how a firefighter training exercise ended up tearing apart the wrong house.

NewsCenter 5’s Rhondella Richardson reported that a Braintree family invited the fire department to conduct a training exercise at their home that was slated to be torn down. But instead of going to 6 Harrison Ave., firefighters ended up a few blocks away at 30 Coolidge Ave. [..]

The firefighters were practicing ventilating burning buildings by tearing holes in the roof.

After waiting for the fire department to arrive, contractors ended up demolishing the Harrison Avenue home.’
