The second victim of the fire, an elderly woman, remains in serious condition at Brigham and Women's Hospital, the department says, adding investigators determined the fire on the second floor of the triple decker was caused by a short circuit.
This is Boston's second fatal fire this year. In January, a fire in Readville killed a woman.
