Firefighters rescue ducklings from storm drain By Tara Vocino R evere firefighters were called upon to rescue nine ducklings who were stuck in a storm drain at 18 Griffin St. last Thursday afternoon. According to Capt. Robert Fortuna, Capt. Domenic LaSala along with firefighters Patrick Roosa and Michael Forte arrived at the scene to find a man standing over the storm drain where the ducklings were trapped approximately five feet underground. The crew of Engine 4 used two plastic rakes to scoop the ducklings from the drain. Surprisingly, the first few ducklings jumped back in, but firefighters placed them into a bucket to keep them out of the drain. During the rescue, the mother duck stood anxiously watching the operation from a distance. The ducklings were taken across the street, where the mother retrieved her ducklings. A.B.C.

Basement fire prompts candle safety reminder Fire officials are again stressing the danger of candles after an unattended candle caused approximately $30,000 in damage in a basement fire at 451 Revere Beach Blvd. on May 11. “The fire investigation concluded that an unattended candle lit too close to combustibles was the cause,” Fortuna said. “Many people use candles to light and decorate their homes, but maybe it’s time to consider a safer alternative.” Fortuna also said candles should always be kept in an appropriate container and a safe distance away from anything that could catch fire.
