Boston firefighters responded at 5:50 a.m. to 1212 VFW Parkway - across from the Home Depot - for a fire that quickly escalated to six alarms as a leaking gas main kept feeding the flames.
Firefighters were ordered out of the three-story building and tried to keep the fire from spreading as they waited for a utility crew to shut off the gas, the Boston Fire Department reports.
One resident and two firefighters were taken to a local hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.
The department says 36 people were displaced and estimated damage at $2 million.
