Plumber sets house on fire in Roxbury

Fire at 1 Howard Place in Roxbury

A plumber working on pipes in a house under renovation at 1-3 Howard Pl. heated them up so much they sparked a two-alarm fire that caused an estimated $500,000 in damage this morning, the Boston Fire Department reports.

Firefighters responded at 9:55 a.m. to a fire on the top floor of the building, near the intersection of Howard Avenue and Dudley Street, the department says.

There were no injuries.





Plumbers setting fires now?

By on

We just took Sawzalls away from them, do we need to ban torches next?
