Hingham: Large Brush Fire Closes Two Roads


A large brush and rubber fire broke out after multiple loud booms were heard Sunday in Hingham.

Norwell and Weymouth assisted Hingham Fire at the site of a large fire at Spirito’s Construction yard off of French Street in Hingham Sunday afternoon.

French and Holbart streets were closed during the time the fire was active.
