Two firefighters have died and another 16 people have been hospitalized after a nine-alarm, wind-driven blaze broke out in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood.
The inferno began in the basement of a four-story brownstone at 298 Beacon St. around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Boston Fire Department. It later spread up through all the floors and out through the roof.
The city is experiencing 45 mph wind gusts Wednesday so crews were fighting to keep the blaze from spreading.
A nine-alarm fire means the blaze is severe enough to bring out all available fire crews, More than 150 firefighters were battling the fire from outside the structure.
No residents are reported missing. Massachusetts General Hospital says they are treating two patients.
This has been a busy past couple of days, as crews from Swatara Twp. companies responded to another working fire in the 49 box area. This evening the Squad responded with 6 to assist Company 49 and other twp. and mutual aid companies at a working structure fire on Paxton Street at the Scottsdale Plaza. The fire was burning in the area of 3 phase power lines entering the bldg. therefore crews had to wait until PPL secured the power. Once secured crews went to work.
