WHDH is reporting that a couple of good samaritans ran into a burning home on Tuesday afternoon on Park Street. A 2-alarm fire broke out at 567 Park Street around 4pm.

Robert Ellison and a friend saw the flames and jumped into action.  They began knocking on doors and found one resident running down the stairs.  He had been sleeping.  All evacuated the building safely.
