Short circuit sparks two-alarm fire across from Broadway T stop
The Boston Fire Department reports a fire that erupted around 12:30 a.m. at 24 W. Broadway forced eight residents into the chill air, but caused no injuries.
A third-floor short-circuit started the fire, which did an estimated $400,000 in damage. The Red Cross assisted residents in finding new places to stay. The department noted that, in addition to apartments, the building houses a Dunkin' Donuts.
