Early morning fire leaves 40 homeless in Boston

Fire in a basement laundry room quickly spread up a ventilation shaft to the roof of a 6 story apartment  building at the corner of Hemenway Street and Westland Avenue just before 3:00 Am Sunday morning. Sprinkler systems knocked down the fire in the basement, but the roof fire grew quickly. A third alarm had to be called, as firefighters fought the fire and evacuated the residents from the building. After the fire was brought under control, the Red Cross was requested for 40 people who were displaced from their homes.
