I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE KNOWN TOMMY SPENCER. AS THE SENIOR MAN AT E9 HE TOOK ME UNDER HIS WING AND INTRODUCED ME TO HIS WONDERFUL FAMILY. HE TRIED TO TEACH ME ABOUT OPERA, BEING A GOOD DAD AND A GOOD JAKE. HE WAS ONE OF THE BEST MEN I HAVE EVER KNOWN AND HE LOVED HIS FAMILY AND HE LOVED BEING A FIRFIGHTER. I CAN ONLY HOPE TO BE HALF AS GOOD A MAN, AS HE WAS. MAY GOD BLESS ALL THE FAMILYS TOUCHED BY THIS HORRIBLE FIRE AND MAY HE KEEP SAFE SULLY AND JACK AND ALL THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE WORCESTER FIRE DEPARTMENT.

In reference to central fire station the chief was Charlie McCarthy and spent many Sunday dinners with my family on summer st. I remember him saying that the tower on headquarters was a replica of a tower in Italy. He tried to save it from the wrecking ball but was unsuccessful. If I remember correctly it was Florence Italy

This horse-drawn steamer #3 was stored many years in my dad's station on Eastern Ave. There was a fundraiser in late 60's or early 70's from the worcester schoolchildren. Which I remember donating money. The firemen restored this old steamer at the Grove street station. Worcester had a parade on Main St. which it was showed off, shortly after that and in was on public view at the science center on Harrington way.

I would like to see the fire station at the corner of Winslow and Pleasant Streets. A school chum, Ruth McTighe's father worked there back in the late 1930s/ early 1940s. I lived right across from that fire station which was on the opposite corner from Winslow Street School.

I hope you get this message and you are able to pass it along to the families of the victims of the wharehouse fire. I never knew any of the victims. But each year I place handmade memorials on my tree for the brave men that died in that tragic fire. I know those men only through what was written about them, they are my heroes. Each year I intend to write to each family expressing my deepest condolences and to let them know that they are not forgotten in my household. As long as I am on this earth, I will place their pictures on my Christmas Tree. My father, my own hero, is a fellow Jake, he asks each year if I have put up my special angels. I know their names, I remember something about each of them. I hope that someone receives this and knows that there is a woman in Beverly, MA that celebrates the lives of these heroes each and every year. They will never be forgotten, they are in my heart and my soul. Please pass this on to the families of the fallen brothers. Your loss is my angel on the tree each year. Thank you. Kellee Costa

In search of a life saving stranger......My mother was living in Worcester in the mid/late 70's she was just a young girl maybe 19. The apartment she had been living in with her younger sister and mother had caught fire, leaving her stranded and alone inside in bed. The fire dept had come and a fireman had entered the burning home to save her. She was severly burnt all over her body and spent many months in the hospital fighting to stay alive. I have found out recently of her accident from my primary care dr, before he retired he wanted me aware of what my mother overcame (prior to my birth). She never speaks of it to this day, maybe her way of healing...problem is - this man who saved my mother was hurt as well. I have heard he was forced to stop working due to his injuries (bad lungs) saving her, and never worked as a fireman again. His career was over the day he saved her life. My family has never met this man, or even told his name. It's now 30 years later......and I want to thank him, with ALL of my heart. I love my mother and I am so happy to have her every day. If he had not saved her I would not be nor would my son. Thank you for giving me my family. I hope to find you one day and thank you in person. Kelly_4577@yahoo.com

Does anyone have information on the old fire house that set into Newton Hill across from Elm Park?
Neil Donahue- October 10, 2011 - Report this comment
That building you thought was a firehouse across from Elm park on Park avenue was the Worcester Fire Alarm building..Fire alarm is now at Police Headquarters.
