Fire displaces dozens in Leominster
6-alarm blaze’s cause unknown
Leominster Mayor Dean Mazzarella said watching a six-alarm fire destroy a former hotel that housed apartments and businesses late Saturday night was devastating. “We had a lot of life down here,” said Mazzarella at the scene of the blaze Sunday afternoon. The cause of the blaze, which started in a small attic and raged for about eight hours, is under investigation, fire officials said.
