A fire that broke out shortly before 11 a.m. at 34 Church St. quickly spread to all four floors and the basement and went to four alarms before it was brought under control about a half-hour later. The home's occupants were not home at the time, the Boston Fire Department reports.
The department estimates the fire caused $750,000 in damage and says it sent two firefighters to the hospital, one with a back and shoulder injury, the other with a cut leg. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
