UPDATE: The Boston Fire Department says six firefighters were taken to local hospitals for fire-related injuries and that damage is estimated at $1 million.
Firefighters are at the Albanian Orthodox Church of St. John the Baptist, 410 Broadway, battling a fire that has sent a column of thick black smoke into the air above South Boston.
Firefighters were ordered out of the church around 9:30, shortly before a ceiling collapsed. Commanders set up a "collapse zone" around the church should the entire building collapse.
