Heavy Equipment Fire In Adams Under Investigation
ADAMS, Mass.— The Fire Department extinguished a heavy equipment fire at Duke's Sand and Gravel that is currently under investigation by the Adams Police Department.
Fire Chief John Pansecchi said the department responded to a fire at the gravel banks off Grove Street early Sunday around 2 p.m.
"We found an excavator burning. We extinguished it rather quickly, and it is under investigation by the Police Department," he said.
Pansecchi couldn't comment on whether or not the fire was suspicious but did say knockdown was simple, quick, and safe.
"There were no buildings or anything; there wasn't any danger. So that is a good thing," he said. "We had a quick knockdown, and we brought it to the police department for further investigation ... It was out in nowhere land so we really had nothing to worry about except putting out the fire."
