The Worchester Cold Storage fire that killed 6 Worchester Firefighters occurred on this date in 1999. Having been a Captain for about 10 years, I was able to more fully appreciate the spectrum of loss and tragedy. There is a wealth of information regarding this fire available. But, in trying to remain brief, I’ve included just a few links that help tell the story of the “Worchester 6”.
