Resident, firefighter injured in fire on Brookvale Street in Dorchester

Firefighter on Brookvale Street roof

The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded to 6 Brookvale St., behind Carney Hospital and off Dorchester Avenue, around 9 a.m. for a fire that displaced seven residents and Gordo the cat.

One resident and one firefighter were taken to the hospital, according to the department.

The department estimated damage at $150,000 and says the fire was particularly challenging, because it broke out on the top floor and firefighters had to deal with utility wires in front of the house to get to the roof.

Glad to read everyone got out alive, including Gordo. I hope his family can find new housing that also allows cats! Best wishes for a speedy recovery to the two in hospital!
