CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Residents of the Billerica Road neighborhood where town officials have proposed putting a new center fire station turned out in droves Tuesday to protest.
"I live next door to this monstrosity. How are you going to stop the sounds from interrupting our lives? There are going to be nights I can't sleep," said Kevin Ross, who also protested the proposed lighting for the station.
