Circa 1955 Working Fire at the Coonamessett Ranch on what is currently rt. 151 across from Ranch Rd. All Adjecent to the current Nickelodean Cinema.
Note that the entire operation is an exterior operation hence the increased fire damage and difficult extinguishment. Without SCBA this is what you got!

Apparatus shown here is the 1953 E-3 from North Falmouth and L-1 from Sta. 1. Interestingly no other apparatus is seen in the area for a working fire. E-3 was a Robinson Boiler Works apparatus that served until 1979. L-1 was a 1949 Maxim Motors 65' quint aerial that served until 1971.
