I work in Andover. On the commute home, I saw 4 helicopters hovering over 495, so I assumed it was an accident.Then I saw and smelled smoke from multiple locations once I got on the highway. It smelled like one giant forest fire.
My son started a job delivering pizzas for a place in North Andover. My wife was freaking out because he wasn't returning calls and texts. She called the pizza place and they said they were evacuating, but my son still wasn't responding. She called the pizza place again a half hour later. My son was there and was just leaving. Turns out the place hadn't evacuated, despite orders. My son just said "screw this", and left.
