Boston Fire Leaves Dozens Homeless

A two-alarm fire spread through an apartment in the Fenway (Boston) neighborhood Monday night, leaving dozens of people temporarily homeless, reports the Boston Globe.

District 4 Fire Chief Scott Malone said the fire started in a vacant apartment on the third floor at about 5:30 p.m.

There were no injuries, ­Malone said, but at least 26 people were displaced. He said damages were estimated at $500,000, and officials were investigating the cause.

"We don't know if someone was working in [the vacant apartment] at that time," said Malone. "We're trying to nail that down."

Tenants said that some of the units have been undergoing renovations and that a fire forced them out of the building for a time last year, as well.
