Fire in multiple structures in East Boston neighborhood
Companies were alerted to a fire in the rear of 309 Sumner Street and 102 Webster Street. Upon arrival firefighters found fire in two structures and extending into a third. The close proximity of structures to each other contributed to the fire’s spread. The incident went to six alarms before being brought under control. One firefighter was injured and there were no reported civilian injuries. This is the first multiple alarm fire for Joseph Finn, Boston’s newest Fire Commissioner.
