Firefighters braved both fire and ice early this morning when fire erupted on Calumet Street. The Boston Fire Department reports heavy damage to 37, 35, 39 and 41 Calumet, in a fire that was still causing trouble several hours after it was first reported around 12:45 a.m.
Not long after firefighters arrived:
Ladder 4 had a report of a person trapped on floor 2. They kicked in a door and found a woman.
She was taken to the hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.
Channel 5 reports before firefighters arrived, two guys ran into one of the buildings to alert residents.
Another West Roxbury resident takes note of the daytime-roaming coyote that seems completely at ease with modern civilization:
This coyote has been hanging around for a couple weeks. It is completely unafraid of humans and is out during the day. This makes me think that there is something wrong with it. This photo was taken in my neighborhood at the corner of Church and Rendall.
