Porch fire doesn’t get far.

Firefighters were called to 42 Florence Avenue in Lowell this afternoon at 5:11 p.m., for a report of a porch fire.

Engine 7 arrived within two minutes and reported smoke coming from the front of the house. Reports like that are what gets me out of my office, so I headed up to the scene.

By the time I arrived, what is pictured above is where things stood. Engine 7 and Ladder 2 had knocked the fire down, and crews were just tearing up some floor boards from the porch to make sure everything was safe.

The fire was knocked down within 5 minutes. No injuries.
