BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A two-alarm fire in Brighton Thursday morning has left eight people and a dog displaced.
The fire broke out around 2 a.m. at a triple-decker family home on Waverly Street, near Western Avenue and Birmingham Parkway.
Fire crews had to deal with the hot weather while working to knock down the flames.
"It was hot, not horrible, but we had to rotate the crews out," Boston Fire District Chief Igor Verbitzki said. "They did a nice job in knocking down the heavy fire in the rear. All the residents were able to get out unharmed, and there have been no injuries to firefighter crew either."
He also said it is not clear what caused the fire.
Damages are estimated to be around $200,000.
