Boston firefighters responded to 1 Congress St. shortly before 10:30 for what turned into a five-alarm fire on the 20th floor of the 43-story building.

Boston EMS reports two people required treatment; one was then transported to a nearby hospital with "minor illness."

The Government Center tunnel ramps were shut due to the Fire Department activity.

Firefighters were able to get to the fire from inside the building and douse it with water:
