The Georgetown Fire Department responded to an attic fire at 100 Pond St. just before 11 p.m. June 21. Deputy Russ Moyer was the first on the scene and observed heavy smoke. A resident of the home told Moyer that all occupants were outside, including the family dog. Chief Albert Beardsley reported that the fire began in the area of a light fixture on the ceiling of the first-floor living room, then broke through decking in the attic and proceeded upward, causing extensive water and smoke damage throughout the building. Mutual aid at the scene from Boxford, Byfield, and Groveland provided relief to Georgetown firefighters in the extreme heat and humidity conditions.
