Pinecrest Clubhouse Fire Averted

by Bobby Blair
March 31, 2013

After visiting relatives for Easter on Sunday afternoon, Golf Course Advisory Chairman Deb Moore swung by the Pinecrest Golf Club to see if her son John needed a ride home. The younger Moore works in the clubhouse kitchen part time.

Pulling up around 3 p.m. to the rear of the building Deb Moore thought she noticed steam rising from the bark mulched area close to the building. Upon further investigation Moore noticed flames a foot high in four different places close to the exterior of the building.

Alerting the two cleanup workers in the kitchen, Moore pulled the fire alarm and grabbed a fire extinguisher. Moore also notified her husband John (the family lives just a short distance away on Mill Street) and proceeded with John to put the fire out.

What Moore couldn't understand is why the fire department didn't respond. A call was placed to the department and Chief Cassidy did respond, but it appears that the fire alarms at the clubhouse have never been hooked up. Careless disposal of a cigarette is believed to be the culprit according to Moore. When questioned by the HollistonReporter.com as to who actually put out the fire (Moore's husband John is a retired Framingham firefighter) Deb responded "we both did". And that's why some marriages last longer than others.

If correct, it is very disappointing that our Town leadership does not follow up the safeguarding of our assets like our local businesses have to. Life safety inspections are mandatory in public buildings. How long has this facility been open for business and the fire alarms have not been hooked up to the station? I would like to understand the accountability here. Tax payer money is spent on this facility. Thank you Holliston Reporter. Please stay on this until answers and an apology (if warranted) to the Town are given.
