One Burned, Dozens Displaced In 2-alarm Fire At Billerica Apartment Building

One resident was taken to a Boston hospital for treatment of burns, and several dozen people were displaced after a 2-alarm fire broke out at 22-unit apartment building in Billerica Friday afternoon, officials said.

The fire at 6 Kenmar Drive was reported at about 4:15 p.M., Jennifer Mieth, a spokeswoman for the State fire marshal’s office said in an e-mail.

The fire marshal’s office responded to the scene, Mieth said shortly after 8 p.M.

The victim was taken to Lahey Clinic and the transferred to a burn center in Boston, Billerica Fire Captain John Martell said. Their condition was not known Friday night.

The fire was contained to a single apartment in the building, Martell said. That unit was gutted, and there was heavy heat damage to the third floor as well, he said.

A minimum of 44-people were displaced by the fire, Martell said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Martell said.

A D.C. Man mourning his mother now is coping with the theft of her ashes.

Kevin Lynch’s mother, 85-year-old Margaret Lynch, died in a San Diego hospital March 25.

“Her death was very difficult to see,” he said.

Lynch said she had symptoms of the coronavirus.

“I was there,” he said. “It was terrible. I mean, it was a tough experience.”

After his mother died, Lynch said he flew home to D.C. His mother was cremated, and her ashes were mailed in an urn to his apartment building in Northwest.

Lynch said he thought it was lost in the mail when he didn’t received it, but Wednesday night he found out the U.S. Postal Service delivered it last month.

Surveillance video appears to show a man shoving packages — including one that contained the urn — into a bag at the apartment concierge desk.

“How does someone raise someone to be so callous to things that are precious to other people?” Lynch asked.

He filed a police report, and detectives are investigating. They have not released the surveillance video, so News4 blurred the face of the man.

“I would just like to have my mom’s remains returned somehow or found so she can have a proper burial and send off,” Lynch said. Detectives want anyone with information about the crime to call the Metropolitan Police Department.
