    The HollistonFire Department consist of a wonderful group of firefighters who work hard for the town of Holliston. They were working that fire for over 12 hours. Thank you for all the towns who sent help to us.

    Thank you to all the fire fighters and rescue personnel! Curious as to the status of the building as my husband works in the company next to it and was told to report to work today. He came home smelling of burning chemicals. I don’t see how that can be good.
