TYNGSBOROUGH — Fire Chief Wes Russell and Police Chief Richard D. Howe report that the Tyngsborough Fire and Police Departments responded to a two-alarm house fire on Long Pond Road Tuesday morning.
On Tuesday, Sept. 27, at 7:55 a.m., Tyngsborough Public Safety Dispatchers received multiple 911 calls reporting a fire in a home at 10 Long Pond Road.
Companies arrived to find heavy fire conditions in the second floor and attic of a three-family home, and learned that all residents were able to evacuate on their own.
A second alarm was struck and firefighters from Tyngsborough and Dracut made an aggressive interior attack on the fire, but were unable to access the attic space and were forced to evacuate the building. Firefighters then attacked the fire from the exterior.

Firefighters from Dracut, Dunstable, Chelmsford, Westford and Nashua, N.H. provided mutual aid. TrinityEMS and Lowell General Hospital Paramedics also assisted at the scene.
The point of origin and cause of the fire are under investigation by the Tyngsborough Fire Department and the State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s office.
Approximately 10 residents of the building were displaced. The American Red Cross of Massachusetts was contacted to begin providing support to those residents, and The Salvation Army — Lowell Corps also responded to assist firefighters and residents.
