UPDATE: Fire caused by short circuit.
Boston firefighters responded around 12:25 a.m. to 30 Myrick St., off Franklin, for what became a four-alarm fire. Around 12:55 a.m., firefighters were ordered out of the building. Ten minutes later, they were ordered off the roof as they went into "defensive" mode, aimed mainly at keeping the fire from spreading to nearby buildings.
Around 1:45 a.m., fire commanders declared the bulk of the fire knocked down and gave firefighters the OK to resume "offensive" firefighting, as shown in this photo by Allston Rat City:
The Boston Fire Department reports one firefighter suffered a back injury. At least 11 people were displaced by the fire.
Damage was estimated at $1 million; the cause is under investigation.
