A two-alarm fire caused $350,000 in damages and brought at least eleven fire trucks and over fifteen additional emergency response vehicles to 39 Saint Margaret Street this morning. The Boston Fire Department received a call at 11:13 a.m. for a house fire at the owner occupied three decker. The first floor of the Dorchester household was unoccupied, with the second floor occupied by the owner and the owner's children lived on the third floor. All of the residents escaped injury, but a firefighter was hurt in a fall inside the dwelling.  Read more
