      Just a point of clarification: Triple deckers do not have mansard roofs. They usually have flat roofs. That's not a triple decker. It's a 2 1/2 story Victorian.

      I was on my way to downtown from the Orient heights neighborhood when I knew something big was up. I saw the large response of emergency personal from my local firehouse to the ones rushing from downtown and Charlestown. I made eye contact with a firefighter in downtown as he was responding to eastie whom had no sense of fear. At that moment it sent chills down my spine knowing that these brave souls are running into harms way as everyone else is going about their normal routines.
