Careless smoker blamed for another fire, this time in Jamaica Plain
The Boston Fire Department reports a two-alarm fire that displaced eight people on Mozart Street early this morning was due to "careless disposal of a cigarette."
Firefighters responded to 49 Mozart St. around 3:20 a.m. to find heavy flames already flickering from the rear porches of the triple decker.
The fire, which started on the third-floor porch, did an estimated $400,000 damage, according to the department. No residents were injured, but one firefighter suffered a hand burn.
