The 6th and final missing victim was recovered last week, also in their vehicle in the wreckage.

The large portion of the bridge draped over the bow of the vessel is slated to be demolished with shape charge explosives this afternoon at 5pm, weather and conditions permitting.

60 years ago on May 22, 1964, Boston had the largest fire in recent Boston History. The "Bellflower Street Conflagration" The fire spread block after block and required over 12 +Alarms and Mutual Aide from 3 States. The fire started on the porch of a typical wood frame "3 decker" and spread through the neighborhood and jumped streets and rear yards. If a great fire department like Boston F.D. could not control the spread at this fire what does that say to us. Throughout the U.S. Large wood "Stick Built" Multiple Dwellings are being built, or exist, close together and at times without adequate water supply. The wood industry says it is safe but history, some of it is recent history, shows that is wrong. Ask the members of the Lihanna, Hawaii F.D. what a Conflagration is, they know. Is your fire department planning for conflagration involving wood frame multiple dwellings? The fire loading in the interior of these buildings is much higher than it was in 1964. It is now including, over 1300 LBS of synthetics alone in, each dwelling unit.
