Light left on in closet ignites clothes, sparks four-alarm fire in Jamaica Plain
The department says a light bulb in a second-floor closet that was left on was hot enough to ignite clothes that were left too close to it. The fire quickly spread to the roof and the third floor.
It was the second major fire in that corner of Jamaica Plain in less than two weeks. On April 15, a two-alarm fire heavily damaged a triple decker on Glade Avenue, making 11 people homeless.
