No danger to Peabody water supply after pumping station blaze

A three-alarm fire broke out Monday at a water pumping station in Peabody, but there was no apparent danger to the city’s water supply, a fire official said.

The fire at the Coolidge Avenue facility began at about 7:30 p.m. and grew to three alarms by 8:45 p.m., Deputy Fire Chief Joe Daly said.

Just before 11 p.m., firefighters were still working to extinguish the fire, which was contained to the building’s roof, Daly said.

Firefighters from multiple North Shore communities — including Marblehead, North Reading, and Swampscott — assisted, he said.

There were no injuries, Daly said.
