Gloucester Police/Fire: Teen airifted after fire incident

Gloucester Police/Fire

An 18-year-old Gloucester resident was listed in fair condition at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital Friday night after an incident involving a Christmas tree fire at his home on Thursday, authorities said.

Daniel Silva, 18, of Fenley Road, was reportedly driven by a family member to Addison Gilbert Hospital after the incident, then airlifted to Mass. General and treated in the intensive care unit for burns.

No further information on the incident was available as of Friday night.

Police responded to a parking area off East Main and Parker streets around 7 p.m. Thursday after receiving a report of an alleged “road rage” incident.

According to police, the incident occurred near Western Avenue, where a Magnolia Avenue resident followed a Friend Street resident after one had cut the other off. There was no collision, but one resident reportedly tailgated the other.

Police spoke with the Magnolia Avenue driver, but did not file any charges in the incident.

On Friday at 9:25 a.m. police responded to a well-being check on Willow Avenue, but could not locate the person they were seeking.

The resident was believed to have issues, but had never been diagnosed by a doctor, according to the police log. Police said the person was reported as missing and officers found that a warrant had been issued for the resident’s arrest, but the police log did not indicate what the warrant was for.

A Cherry Street resident reported a fraudulent check had been withdrawn from her bank account at 10:34 a.m. on Friday.

Police are investigating.
