Mayor Says Pressure Issues Will Be Resolved

A follow-up on the story about a huge house fire in Holyoke over the weekend.

Mayor Alex Morse called for an audit of the city's fire hydrants after the blaze that destroyed the Fairfield Avenue Historic District home.

Fire officials said they were still able to do their job, but that it was made more difficult.

Now, the general manager of Holyoke Water Works, David Conti, says the issue isn't the hydrants, but rather weak water pressure in that area.

Conti says there are about two-dozen high-priority areas that are scheduled for work over the next few years to address the problem.
