Norwell: Second alarm fire at commercial building

Area fire crews  responded to a fire in Norwell at 22 Longwater Drive, the address of the Zildjian cymbal factory.

Reports of heavy smoke coming from the building came in just before 2 p.m. Thursday; the fire quickly went to a second alarm.

Engines from Hingham, Rockland and Scituate were called to the scene for mutual aid, while Hanover and Hull fire departments were requested to provide station coverage in Norwell.

By around 2:15 p.m. officials were reporting that the fire was knocked down, but extensive overhaul would be required.

Fire officials say they are not sure what caused the fire, but suspect that it may have started from a malfunction somewhere in the manufacturing process.

No one was injured in a two-alarm fire at the Avedis Zildjian Co. headquarters this afternoon, the fire department said.

The fire department was alerted around 2 p.m. that the Norwell building, located in the Assinippi Office Park. The fire was extinguished by around 2:15, the fire department said.

The Scituate, Hingham and Rockland fire departments assisted at the scene.

Zildjian has been a family business since it started in Turkey in 1623. The company's rich history packs its Norwell factory - from black-and-white photographs of former presidents Avedis and Armand Zildjian to the drums used by jazz legend Buddy Rich.
