US (MA): Firefighters battle large blaze at Sudbury greenhouse

Firefighters battled a large fire at a Sudbury, Massachusetts, greenhouse on Wednesday, the 12th of October. Sudbury police said the structure fire was at Cavicchio Greenhouses on Codjer Lane. It was first reported at about 2:40 p.m.

Aerial video showed what appeared to be a greenhouse destroyed by fire. Heavy black smoke was pouring from the structure. The structure was a total loss, Sudbury Fire Chief John Whalen said, but other ones were saved.

"This particular complex has a lack of water. We've had fires here previously," he told reporters, adding that it takes some time to establish the necessary water supply to fight the flames. Police asked residents in the area to close their windows to keep some out of their homes.

Any businesses using Cavicchio Greenhouses were also asked to avoid the area. Motorists were also being asked to stay away. If road closures are needed, police said they would provide a further update.
