at small fire in Southie
It appears that the small fire that began in the basement of a building on West Broadway is suspected of being deliberately set. On Monday, December 9th, the Boston Fire Department responded to a call for visible smoke at 354 West Broadway. The BFD investigated the source of the smoke and noticed a strong odor of gasoline. Further investigation showed evidence of a gel like substance in numerous places in the building as well as, wicks soaked in the same substance on the stairs leading from the first floor to the second floor.
Suspicious, indeed. Case is still under investigation by authorities.
