ROCKLAND - MA   (PLYMOUTH  COUNTY) - Around 2 am on Monday 8-24-09 the Rockland Fire Department responded to a box at EMD/Serono Laboratories at 1 Technology Place. Building security reported smoke in the building. The Serono building is split between Hingham and Rockland with half of the building in each town. In addition to Rockland's response of our Engine 2 and Ladder 1, the Hingham Fire Department responded a ladder, an engine, and an ambulance to the scene. On arrival the companies found alarms ringing and light smoke in the building. Box 33 was immediatly struck for manpower. 
      When the crews made entry, there was initially light smoke inside the lobby. The fire was reported in the Cafeteria. Hingham fire crews reported heavy smoke conditions. Sprinklers had activated in the kitchen and were holding the fire from extending beyond the kitchen area. The small fire was contained in that area and the cause was believed to be electrical and was shortly knocked down. No injuries were reported. Rockland station coverage was provided from Abington. A second alarm was struck due to the size and occupance of the building.
