The crews from both Stations 73 and 74 could see the "loom up" of the billowing cloud of smoke from their firehouses.

The initial crews were met by very heavy fire and smoke, along with a collapsed roof. The building was an abandoned Masonic Lodge. It took the crews about 20 minutes to bring the fire under control. No one was injured and the cause of the fire is under investigation by the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Investigations Bureau.
