According to the department’s Twitter feed, companies responding at around 7:30 a.m. found smoke showing from 98 Charles St. A second-alarm assignment was ordered at the five-story, attached, occupied building.

Crews had to deal with heavy smoke conditions at the 18-unit building, and several people were taken out by ground ladders and aerial ladder. One resident was transported.
