FIRST PLACE: “Queen Street Fire”

Because this early-morning fire was just a few blocks from the Citytv studios, Breakfast Television was first on the scene to cover it. The live coverage included a recap of the relevant issues with fire fighting.

SECOND PLACE: “Mount Pleasant Street Fire”

An apartment fire led to five mayday calls, two of them for fire fighters in real distress. Before it was extinguished, the fire threatened a second apartment building and a church.

Ice, not fire, brought four fire fighters in survival suits to a pond in Weymouth. There, at 2:00 a.m., they rescued a screaming, drowning man who never should have been on the frozen pond.
