The Boston Fire Department blames "careless disposal of smoking material" for a fire called in around 1:45 a.m. on Friday in the rear of 28 Parmenter St. in the North End.
This fire only did an estimated $5,000 in damage, to the roof of a one-story extension to the four-story occupied building, but firefighters were on scene until 3:35 a.m.
A neighbor adds the fire is particularly concerning because workers from a couple of nearby businesses use the rear of 28 Parmenter as a smoking area all the time.
