Opening of new South Boston market delayed when it catches fire
The Boston Fire Department reports a two-alarm fire damaged Foodies, 230 W. Broadway, only a couple weeks before the store was due to bring gourmet food to South Boston.
The fire, reported around 11:10 a.m., started in the basement, but traveled to the roof of the former American Nut building. Sprinklers activated, sending water into the electrical system. There were no injuries.
