BOSTON — A firefighter was injured battling a blaze at a three-floor home in Boston on Wednesday morning.
The Boston Fire Department wrote on Twitter that firefighters battled heavy flames on all three floors of the house and one firefighter was transported to the hospital. Two people and a dog were safely evacuated from the house, according to the department.
Officials say the two-alarm blaze caused an estimated $750,000 in damage to the home and a vehicle in the driveway.
The department first reported that all companies were on the scene at about 4:30 a.m. and said detail companies were handling hotspots at about 6 a.m. The agency thanked rehab service Boston Sparks for assisting at the scene.
The department's investigation unit is working to determine the cause of the blaze.
