At the start of the fire injured firemen and residents were taken to the Salem Hospital on Charter, Derby, and Liberty Streets. It soon became apparent that the hospital was in the direct path of the fire; patients were transferred to the Peabody and Beverly hospitals. Only the administration building of the hospital complex survived.
