BFD responded to a call for a fire at 16 National Street around 8pm on Saturday. Fire was showing on the the second and third floors of an attached three-story occupied building. A second alarm was ordered. Fire companies were able to contain the fired from spreading to adjacent buildings. Eventually fire was knocked down.
NBC10 Boston is reporting that a man who lived at the address was asking for help from neighbors after telling them his shirt had caught on fire while cooking and then set the rest of the house on fire. Good lord!
Damages are estimated at $350,000.
Thanks BFD for keeping our neighborhood safe!
