Early morning fire empties Fenway apartment building
A three-alarm fire in a six-story apartment building at 90 Westland Ave. sent residents scurrying into the night when it erupted around 2:40 a.m.
The Boston Fire Department reports no injuries from the fire, which was flaming from the roof when firefighters arrived.
The building, known as Cappy's Corner, houses students from several nearby colleges. The mayor's office assisted them in finding alternate housing for the night.
The blaze did an estimated $400,000 in damage, the department says, adding investigators this morning are still trying to determine the cause.
