Firefighters battled a five-alarm fire on Quincy Street on Sunday afternoon – displacing 30 people.
The fire started around 4pm on the back porch of 439 Quincy Street. The fire became a 4-alarm when it spread to two adjacent three-family homes. Then a fifth alarm was sounded to rotate out firefighters to keep them safe and prevent heat exhaustion. It was in the 90’s on Sunday afternoon.
The fire was knocked down in roughly 40 minutes. All occupants were safely evacuated from the buildings. Damages are estimated at 400,000. The BFD fire investigation unit was on scene to determine the cause of the fire. No word yet.
