Fire officials investigating cause of Boston-area fire
BOSTON - Fire investigators are trying to determine what caused the huge blaze that ripped through a Boston-area neighborhood, displacing about 60 to 80 people but "miraculously" resulting in no serious injuries or deaths.
The 10-alarm fire Saturday in Cambridge destroyed or damaged 15 structures. Some first responders suffered minor injuries. Cambridge Assistant Fire Chief Gerard Mahoney says it's "nothing short of a miracle" no one was killed. He credits the fact the blaze started shortly before 3 p.m.
Mahoney says fire crews on Sunday were assessing the structural integrity of the buildings and hosing down hot spots. The 33-year-veteran says it was the biggest fire he's seen in Cambridge.
A Mayor's Fire Relief Fund has been created online to help families. The Red Cross and local officials are assessing their needs.
