Yesterday evening, fire crews first responded to a fire at 2 Stonehurst St. Photos and video on the Boston Fire Department Twitter feed showed firefighters encountering heavy fire venting from the dwelling. The fire ultimately went through the roof and went to three alarms, with firefighters making use of heavy stream appliances and multiple large diameter hoses.
Damage was estimated at about $500K. Two firefighters were hospitalized, and four adults and two children were displaced.
