Boston Firefighters Battle 2-Alarm Blaze


Boston firefighters battled a noontime fire that reached two alarms before destroying a garage and damaging several homes.

Boston Fire Department was dispatched to 113 Pierce St, in Hyde Park, for a building fire at 11:50 a.m.

They found the garage fire had extended to a nearby home.

At 12 p.m. a second alarm was called to help douse the fire. The garage was fully engulfed and spread to a second home.

Several propane tanks exploded as crews surrounded the structures with hoselines and master streams.

One firefighter was transported after falling at the scene.

According to the Boston Fire Department, the fire caused a half-million dollars in damage. The fire was started by roofers trying to burn weeds alongside the garage.
