Could smell and see smoke from Boston street

I'm just off of Boston St - I couldn't see any smoke, but I sure smelled it. (At first I was looking around my apartment to make sure it wasn't something there - it was that noticeable.) I heard plenty of sirens on their way somewhere as well. My prayers to those affected.

Glad to hear all got out okay and all the firefighters are safe, too.

This is a bad time of year for big fires - Revere had 6 alarms last week, 7 alarms for this one this week ... that huge apartment complex fire in Peabody comes to mind, too.

And then there was Bellflower Ave ...https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2014/05/21/city-recalls-devastating-do...
