As many as 30 people may have been made homeless by an early morning fire on Allston Street that was so intense, for a time people arriving on scene could not even see the sidewalk due to the thick smoke.
Shortly after 8 a.m., firefighters were still dealing with flareups in two of the three buildings.
There's a GoFundMe site for two of the residents:
Chris Scovil and Steph Heiser lost freakin' everything to a 9-alarm fire last night. Thankfully, they were out of the house when it happened. But, they have no renter's insurance and nothing left. They need help even just getting through the next few days, and that's what we're here for. I know they have a ton of awesome friends who will be glad to give to help them get back on their feet as soon as they can.
