Boston fire's fuel apparently missed

By Donovan Slack 
Boston Globe
 
BOSTON The owner of Tai Ho Mandarin and Cantonese Restaurant has given city officials a receipt indicating that a company hired to remove kitchen grease at the West Roxbury eatery in June did not clean the kitchen exhaust pipe. Firefighters have said grease buildup in that pipe fueled a blaze last week that killed two Boston firefighters.

The receipt from Roslindale-based J&B Cleaning says its staff worked in the kitchen below and climbed onto the roof above to clean an exhaust fan. But it does not say they cleaned the crucial area in between, where fire officials say the hidden grease was leaking.

There is no indication on the June 21 receipt that the cleaners even examined the vent for grease buildup.
