Just after 7:00 pm a fire was reported at 91A Washington Street. Firefighters working in light rain managed to confine the blaze to the third floor of the three story structure. A business "Happy Dumplings" occupies the first floor while several apartments are on the upper floors. Beverly, Essex, Hamilton, Ipswich, Manchester and Rockport provided Mutual Aid support. Thankfully no injuries reported at the time of this post. The state Fire Marshall arrived at 10:00 pm to investigate the cause.
