One expensive smoke: Lit cigarette ignites $500,000, two-alarm fire on Mission Hill early this morning
Three residents were at home at the time; all got out safely.
The department says the front porch of the house, where the cigarette was, was burned away. The fire traveled to the second floor up the stairs, the department says.
Channel 4 reports one of the residents, like the others a Mass. College of Arts student, fell asleep on the couch while smoking.
