Fire in Haverhill displaces 4 families
A two-alarm fire destroyed a two-story house at 63 Pecker St. on Saturday morning, leaving four families homeless, according to Deputy Fire Chief Brian Moriarty. He said one dog died in the fire, but members of the four families escaped safely. Firefighters could see smoke billowing as they left the fire station on Water Street, less than a mile away, Moriarty said. When they arrived, heavy flames were rising from the basement in the back of the building, he said.
