The Boston Fire Department reports a four-alarm fire at 877 Beacon St. early this morning did an estimated $3 million in damage, forced the evacuation of residents of neighboring buildings and injured two firefighters.
Firefighters responded at 1:25 a.m. to the building, which housed offices, not apartments. The department says that while residents were evacuated - MBTA buses were brought in to give them shelter - firewalls between the buildings held, preventing the fire from spreading. Residents were allowed back in around 4:30 a.m.
Both injured firefighters were taken to the hospital, one with a shoulder injury, one with an ankle injury.
The cause remains under investigation.
