Trooper Roland Cormier of the State Police Fire Investigation Unit assigned to the State Fire Marshal’s office was requested to a recent two-alarm fire on Worcester Road in Framingham (MA). With him was K-9 Curtis, one of nine trained accelerant detection K-9s assigned to the unit. The frigid temps and icy conditions were bad enough, but rock salt and ice melt are harmful to dogs – so Trooper Cormier brought him to a DFS Rehab Unit to warm up and clean off his paws.
