Fire Displaces Four Residents on Burr Street

A two-alarm fire that started in the attic of a 17 Burr St. home did about $100,000 damage, said Steve MacDonald, spokesman for the Boston Fire Department.

Crews responded to the single-family home at 2:37 p.m. Friday. They had to maneuver carefully on the crowded street to brace Tower Ladder 10 as it deployed its ladder.

There were no injuries in the incident, MacDonald said. Four residents are displaced from their home, but MacDonald said they had family or friends to stay with. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
