Firefighters were sweltering even before they got up to the roof to battle a fire on Commonwealth Avenue in Allston

Firefighters on Commonwealth Avenue roof

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters made quick work of a rooftop fire at 1027-1033 Commonwealth Ave. in Packards Corner shortly after 1:30 p.m.

And then it was time for some major rehydration:

I understand your concern, but if you drop dead from heatstroke, you won't live long enough to develop cancer.

"Fuck The Fire Department" when the Skybar closed years ago. They couldn't afford bringing their sprinkler system up to code. Their booker decided to run a show their last night called "Fuck The Fire Department".

Years later she died in a house fire.

Unfortunately we're trying our best to be on the wrong side of current events with all the thin blue line flags and other garbage.

I stopped by the scene of a big fire in Chelsea yesterday and it was very similar. They had water and Gatorade etc ready for the guys. They were literally wringing sweat out of their layers. Here I was feeling over heated with a polo and my mask on not doing anything... I couldn't imagine what it's like close to a fire with all that equipment while moving around
