Waterfront warehouse bursts into flames in East Boston

East Boston warehouse fire

BFD: Cause may have been somebody using a heat source to warm a trailer he or she was sleeping in.

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded around 6 p.m. to Border Street for what turned into a four-alarm fire in a vacant three-story warehouse next to the shopping center.

No injuries so far, the department reports.

210 Border Street in East Boston is a CVS in the Liberty Mall, not a warehouse.

BFD gave the building's location as "opposite 173 Border St." I've changed the post.

Pretty sure Capital Waste leases that building. That would explain the empty dumpsters....
