Dozens Evacuated After Lowell Mill Fire

LOWELL (CBS) – Dozens of people were evacuated after a fire broke out at an old mill in Lowell.

The mill is vacant, but it’s in a luxury condo complex.

Residents scrambled to evacuate as the nearby building went up in flames.

Luckily the fire didn’t spread and everyone got out safely.

    It’s an apartment complex, not condos.

    It’s not luxury by any stretch of the imagination

    The vacant mill did not go up in flames

    Lowell Fire Dept did a great job last night.

    Thanks for the comments, Simon. Boy, are you right!! I’ve been a ‘mill architecture’ guy since teaching in Fall River 40 years ago. The mill names are important; how old they are is important; what they manufactured is important. This report is akin to saying: there was a fire in Boston, some people were evacuated, the building was destroyed. Gee, thanks.
