The fire broke out around 7 p.m. and pretty quickly destroyed both the All Grace Harvest Church and a three decker attached to it at 858 Hyde Park Ave., near American Legion Highway. Police blocked off a wide swath around the fire scene for hours - traffic was blocked at Canterbury Street on both Hyde Park Avenue and American Legion Highway.

Channel 4 reports two were injured - one a firefighter; 15 evacuated.

Will lives about a quarter-mile away and reports:

... When the house began to fill with smoke I started closing windows but it kept seeping in no matter what I did. ...

This was the second major fire on Hyde Park Avenue today; around 2 a.m., a two-alarm fire broke out in one of the stores across the street from the Forest Hills T stop (note to Channel 7: That is not Hyde Park and it's not a strip mall).

Photos taken from Grew Hill in Roslindale; you could see and smell the smoke at Washington Street and Metropolitan Avenue.

You got signal? I got signal! Brian Goodman of Boston Main Streets and Pat McCormick of the Boston Wireless Advocacy Group check out Roslindale WiFi under the stars - just like Hyde Park WiFi, only Rozzier - after a meeting about WiFi in Roslindale, Hyde Park and West Roxbury.

Hyde Park's become the second city neighborhood to get a city-sponsored WiFi zone after Roslindale. The city's Main Streets program last week installed a wireless access point atop the municipal building in Hyde Park (at Fairmount Avenue and River Street) - similar to the wireless access points that now cover Roslindale Square.

The service, separate from the Boston Public Library's existing WiFi service at the Hyde Park branch, is aimed at giving local businesses a way to give their employees and customers quick 'Net access. But anybody within sight of the municipal building can tap in.

Some marker

If you look, you can still spot signs that Hyde Park was once an independent town, 93 years after Boston annexed it. Above is a former town boundary marker at Dale Street and Windham Road (in what most people would now consider Roslindale) that has somehow survived decades of snowplowing and repaving (there's a "B" on the other side).

Not far from there, Poplar Street abruptly turns into West Street for no apparent reason between two intersections - until you learn that the spot also marks the former boundary between the city of Boston and the town of Hyde Park. Over on Truman Highway, an old pedestrian bridge over the Neponset and the train tracks still bears a plaque with the name of the Hyde Park selectmen who presided over its construction. Others?

There's no better place to watch the melting pot that Boston is becoming than River Street and Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park (it's basically one street; River jags off by the municipal building).

Buy some black-pride t-shirts right down the block from an old Irish bar. Visit J&M (above) for an eclectic variety of figurines (and basics such as pots and pans). Hungry? Try some Dominican seafood at El Fogon (right next door to Melinda's Taqueria and across the street from the old-time Dotty's ice-cream parlor). And check out the small but growing number of galleries and gift shops:
