    Haverhill fire death stirs deal on staffing

    Firefighters union, mayor agree on coverage strategy

    HAVERHILL - After Edwin Santiago heard screams ring through the night, after he had rushed his two children into the street, he scanned the chaotic scene for his next-door neighbor, Phyllis Lamot.

    Fire had engulfed the front of Lamot’s house and residents of the three-decker had run screaming to safety. But the elderly Lamot was nowhere to be seen, and Santiago pleaded with a police officer to let firefighters know someone was still inside.
