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.

Later, at around 4 a.m., companies responded to a three-family residence at 77 Romsey St. Firefighters had heavy fire throughout the structure and all companies were ordered out. One occupant managed to escape, and there were no reported injuries.
