Deerfoot Road Fire Update

June 13, 2008 - Family of five displaced by a fire

A family of five escaped a fire in their 60 Deerfoot Road home, which was reported at 12:25 AM. The first report was a 9-1-1 call placed by the homeowner. Before the Communications Officer could obtain all of the information relating to the 9-1-1 call, the caller was lost. Police and Fire personnel were dispatched. The first emergency responder on scene, Officer Scott Henderson of the Southborough Police Department radioed back to the 9-1-1 communications center that there was a working fire at the address. Officer Henderson observed the homeowners attempting to control the fire and assisted the residents in safely evacuating the house. The four on-duty Southborough firefighters arrived shortly after the police and started to attack the fire, which was concealed behind walls and in the attic, crawl space and eaves. An aerial ladder truck from Westborough was immediately requested as Southborough’s ladder is out of service.

Because the seat of the fire was in hidden spaces of the house, it required a tremendous amount of personnel to pull both interior and exterior walls, ceilings and the roof apart. Mutual aid was requested from the following communities, resulting in a three alarm response:

Westborough - aerial ladder with personnel

Northborough - Chief and engine with personnel

Marlborough - Deputy Chief and engine with personnel

Ashland - engine and personnel

Hopkinton - Chief, engine and personnel

Framingham Fire Department provided an engine and crew to cover Southborough during the incident in the event other calls were received.

The fire was declared under control at 1:35 AM, however, extensive work to find and extinguish all of the hot spots continued for another two hours.

No injuries were reported. Initial damage estimates are placed at $150,000. The fire is under investigation by members of the Office of the State Fire Marshal and the Southborough Fire Investigation Unit.

Fire damages Home on Deerfoot Road

June 13, 2008 - Ashland Firefighters assist Southborough Firefighters in putting out a house fire at 60 Deerfoot Road.  The alarm came in shortly after Midnight.  It went to three alarms bringing in firefighters from Marlborough, Westborough, Hopkinton and Ashland. The original call was for an ambulance. Police Officer Scott Henderson was first on the scene and called dispatch back to report the back of the house on fire. Occupants were evacuated upon arrival of the Southborough Police.  Southborough Fire and the State Fire Marshals office is investigating the cause of the fire.  Southborough Firefighters were still on scene this morning.  Below photo - Westborough's Ladder truck was used along with hand ladders to reach the roof.

More Tree Work

June 12, 2008 - Workers from Lewis Tree remove limbs and the trunk of a tree that was leaning on the wires on Newton Street late yesterday afternoon.  The tree fell from the storm the night before.

Wild Storm hits Southborough

June 11, 2008 - Last night lightening could be seen many miles away overhead from the Agawam and Springfield area signaling that within hours Southborough too could be in the storms path.  It sure was as winds raced ahead of the thunder and lightening.  Estimated winds in the Metrowest area are 60 to 70 MPH.  This caused many trees to come down on a number of roads including Parkerville Road, Southville Road (above & below photo), Flagg and Deerfoot Road area and Latisquama Road.  Many other areas of town had trees leaning on homes or across service wires but no major damages were reported other than power outages and road closures.  It was estimated about 300 homes in Southborough were without power at one time last night. Some homes only getting power back around 11:00 AM this morning hours after power went out and people lost contact with their televisions and the Celtic Lakers Game.

Traffic signs were placed at Washington Street and Fruit Street in Westborough advising that Southville Road was closed ahead but still hundreds of vehicles, cars and tractor trailer trucks continued past the signs making their way only to be turned back at the intersection of Southville and Fiddleneck Roads.  The road was closed due to the large tree that came down in the storm causing National Grid and Verizon workers to replace wires and poles.

Anatomy of a Eagle Scout Project

June 9, 2008 - Brendon Loftus is working on his Eagle Scout project which took place at the Sudbury Valley Trustees of Reservations, Wilfred J. Turenne Wildlife sanctuary, Walnut Street, Southborough.  Brendon, a boy scout from Troop 92,  gathered other scouts and volunteers to help pull invasive species, replanted with native plantings and mulched the walkways in the bird garden.  This weekend Brendon gave a tour of the bird garden and several of the trails that loop through the area. Over the past year, the Southborough News has had the opportunity to photograph several Boy Scouts and their  Eagle Scout Projects.  In order to become an Eagle Scout one has to pass six requirements 1. Be active in the troop and rise through the ranks of Tenderfoot, Second Class, First Class, Star and Life before attaining the rank of Eagle. 2. Demonstrate living by the principles of the Scout Oath and Law in daily life and list people that may give recommendations on your character. 3. Earn a total of twenty-one merit badges including those required for rank of Eagle.  4.  While a Life Scout serve actively for is months in a leadership role of responsibility  5. Develop and give leadership to others in a service project with documentation and 6. Statement of ambitions and life purpose and hold a Scoutmasters conference.  Once a Scout has secured all six requirements they must then follow-up with paperwork, attend an Eagle Board of Review and Plan a Court of Honor (which earlier this weekend Alex Keefe, Boy Scout with Troop 92 made Eagle Scout).  In 2007 the last of six boys from Troop 1 that started their scouting together in Cub Scout Den 1 with den mom Ann Deschamps attained the honor of Eagle Scout.  Scouting history shows that not many Cub Scout Dens have gone all the way through the ranks of Scouting to the Eagle Rank as a complete group of boys.  Usually one or two will drop out of scouting at some time along the way.  But Ann Deschamps boys, all six of them, made it to Eagle Rank. (Insert and below photo contributed by Brendon Loftus).

History of the Worcester Tornado June 9, 1953

June 8, 2008 - William Chittick Author of The Worcester Tornado, June 9, 1953 gives his Multi media presentation What is So Rare as a Day in June, The Worcester Tornado, June 9, 1953.  About three dozen people attended the presentation.  Rare photos from residents near and far from the storm and even rarer movie taken by the late Southborough farmer Ray Davis on Breakneck Hill Road depicted the damage suffered by those in the way of the Tornado.  At the end of the presentation questions and answer forum ensued, with many in the crowd relating their experience to the 1953 tornado here in Southborough.

( Tornado as seen from Holden, MA.credit: Stanley H. Smith and Library of Congress)  To this day the Worcester Tornado remains one of the costliest and deadliest in U.S. History.  It to this day is still the last tornado in the U. S. to have nearly 100 dead (2 people died in Fayville).  The "sister" tornado that hit Flint MI the day before killed just over 100.  The Worcester tornado started in Petersham and continued along a 46 mile route sometimes over a mile wide through Barre, Oakham, Rutland, Holden, Worcester, Shrewsbury, Westborough and eventually ending in Southborough over the Fayville Dam.  The Fayville Post office was destroyed and nearby buildings along with other buildings in town were severely damaged. Marshal Law was implemented in the Town and Route 9 was nearly impassable. Bill Chittick in his multimedia presentation had a map that showed Worcester County and parts of surrounding counties broken down into cities and towns. As each known tornado that has hit the state and these towns in particular the map filled up. As multiple tornado reports over the years accumulated on a specific town, the color of that town would turn a darker red indicating that we are not spared from tornados.  One is reminded that we should always keep an eye on the sky or an ear to the radio and always be prepared for a disaster or emergency at any time day or night even here in Southborough. These two sites can help you prepare your family and pets for such an emergency. www.southboroughfire.org and www.southboroughanimaldisasterpreparedness.org

A Good Save

June 8, 2008 - Southborough Soccer goalie kicks the ball away from the net in a great save. The yellowish tone of the photo is due to a thick mass of pollen that floated off the White Pine Trees across the street from Choate Field.

The Water is Tempting

June 8, 2008 - Participants of yesterday's first annual Southborough Trails Club walk around the rock jetty.  The water was so tempting in the heat to dangle a foot in but the reservoir is off limits to swimming and boating.

Southborough Police Local 167 is seeking donations.  If you received  a letter like this, it is legitimate.  In recent months there was a rash of phone solicitations on behalf of both the fire and the police that had been scams.  This letter is the real thing.

Scurry Away

June 8, 2008 - This little Chipmunk is running as fast as it could as it saw about twenty hikers walking along the Reservoir Trail yesterday.
