Boston Fire Chief Resigns Amid Bombings Controversy

Fire Chief Steven Abraira was sworn in on Dec. 8, 2011.

After two years on the job, Boston’s top fire official has resigned in the wake of his supposed controversial handling of response to the Boston Marathon Bombings.

The Boston Globe reports Steve E. Abraira, chief of the Boston Fire Department, has resigned following complaints from 13 deputy chiefs who have accused him of failing to take control of the scene of the bombings April 15.

In an April letter to Mayor Thomas Menino, the deputy chiefs claim Abraira left the scene in the “hand of law enforcement,” according to the story.

Abraira has argued that the scene appeared under control when he arrived. 

Abraira was the first Boston Fire chief in history hired from outside its union, the Globe reports.

Three Displaced by Morning Fire on Mass Ave

Three South End residents are displaced after a small fire broke out in a 2nd floor apartment on Massachusetts Ave. in the South End on Wednesday morning, according to the Boston Fire Department.

The fire started around 9:40 a.m. inside a unit at 528 Massachusetts Ave. Spokesperson Stephen McDonald said no one was home at the time, and no one was injured.

Damage to the apartment was estimated at $ 100,000 due to the fire, smoke, and extensive water damage on the 2nd floor where the fire started, down to the first floor and basement. 

The American Red Cross said this afternoon they assisted three people from two units that were displaced by the fire. 

“Volunteers provided them emergency temporary shelter, a hotel stay, and funds for food and clothing,” said spokesperson Ashley Studley in a statement. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, said McDonald.
