Massive Fire at Boston Warehouse Causes $1 Million in Damages

Posted on Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Boston Warehouse Fire 1Earlier this month, Boston firefighters were called to a three-story warehouse fire at the U.S. Coast Guard station located on Commercial Street. The facility is used to repair boats. Thankfully, no injuries were reported during the incident; however, damages are estimated to be approximately $1 million.

On its official Twitter account, the Boston Fire Department said that “an inadvertent spark caused some combustibles to catch fire” when welders were working on the roof to install a new vent system. As seen in the picture above, smoke from the fire filled Boston’s North End. Despite the amount of smoke, firefighters were able to quickly bring the fire under control.

Firefighters remained on scene the following day to control hot spots. Check out the video below to see smoke creeping down the streets of Boston during this fire in the YouTube clip provided by Dan Flaherty:
