Not long after fire and law-enforcement officials finished a press conference in which they blamed welding sparks for the fatal Beacon Street fire but declined to say much about the welders themselves, Michele McPhee, currently at ABC News, reported:
Sources said that the investigators believe the welders were aware of the fire and did not call 911 or alert anyone occupying the building about the blaze.
But tonight, the Globe's Maria Cramer reports:
Welders tried to warn others of Back Bay fire, officials say ...
After the fire started, the welders apparently tried to warn others, said two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case.
So, who's right? McPhee doesn't help her case by misspelling the name of the fire commissioner.
