Six-alarm fire hits three Maverick Square buildings; one resident brought down by ladder

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded to 183 Maverick St. in East Boston shortly after 3:30 a.m. for what turned into a six-alarm fire that spread to two adjoining buildings.
The department reports nobody was injured but that one resident was rescued via a ladder from the second floor. Some 25 residents were displaced.
Firefighters were ordered out of the main fire building as flames broke through the roof. The department reports that the cold temperatures didn't help - all that water froze on contact, making the streets slippery.

Living in an apartment or condo makes you wonder how much of a fire safety behavior and practicing person your neighbors are.
