Boston Fire Fatal to 79 yr. old
BOSTON (AP) - An elderly woman died early Sunday morning in a
massive nine-alarm blaze that erupted in three buildings in the
city's Roxbury neighborhood.
The 79-year-old woman lived in one of the two occupied buildings
destroyed by the blaze, which started in a third, partially
constructed condo development, said Boston Fire Department
spokesman Steve MacDonald.
The woman's identity was not immediately released.
The fire began at about 4:30 a.m., and quickly spread to the two
adjacent buildings. About 160 firefighters eventually contained the
MacDonald placed initial damage estimates at $4.5 million. One
firefighter was hospitalized for smoke inhalation.
There was also a fire overnight at a Weymouth gun club.
Firefighters were kept at bay by exploding ammunition, and had
problems tapping hydrants, according to broadcast reports.
