Right where this person who took the photo, behind them is my work. I noticed this building being worked on last week. It was just the shell of a building as of Thursday.

Makes me wonder if it was a gas leak or a spark from electrical work.

Terrible. That one engine in Dunphy's video looks woefully insufficient.

With four alarms, they bring in trucks from all over Somerville and surrounding towns.

The good news it should be unoccupied. There's no way someone was living in the shell I saw on Thursday.

The houses it spread to likely aren't unoccupied.

I could see the smoke plume from my house. My kids were going to head to Davis, but changed plans when they checked out where that plume was coming from.

I'm hoping that the collateral damage was minimal.
