5-Alarm Fire Destroys Iconic Revere Business

Firefighters battled a fire that reached five-alarms Saturday afternoon at the well known Sozio Major Appliances store on Squire Rd. in Revere, Massachusetts.

Sozio is a vintage furniture and appliance store that has been in business for nearly 70 years. 

"It's like part of your past, and it's gone," said Revere resident Richard Dolan.

Firefighters from around the North Shore and other neighboring towns were called in to try and contain the fire that engulfed the store, causing most of it to collapse. 

"We did have a mayday call. A company got disoriented, but our rapid intervention team was standing by. They grabbed them within 20 seconds and got him right out," said Deputy Chief Glen Rich of the Revere Fire Department. 

The family that owned the business was at the scene during the fire. They say that the most important thing is that no one was hurt.
