This wouldn’t be news if it hadn’t happened behind my office and made for a good video, but here’s some footage of Lowell Firefighter Mike Dillon and Lt. Kevin McCauley knocking down a fire in a trash container at Suffolk and Fletcher streets tonight about 11:30 p.m.
No word on what caused this. Officer Luis Rios spotted it and called firefighters to the scene. Rios was talking to neighbors when I left. Fires in trash containers don’t exactly start due to natural causes, though.
