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.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Friday Morning Forecast: Snow Totals Closer to 3 Feet

Boston residents waking Friday morning expecting to see a blanket of snow will be surprised to see that the streets remain clear, with just the occasional flurry drifting down. But weather forecasters maintain: The storm is coming. And when it does, it may be bigger than previously expected. A National Weather Service blizzard warning update posted early Friday morning states that the “historic winter storm and blizzard” could drop up to 3 feet of snow on the area, rather than the 1-2 feet expected yesterday. The alert covers the Boston area as well as much of eastern and southern Massachusetts, southeastern New Hampshire and all of Rhode Island. The NWS alert calls for “heavy snow … blowing and drifting at times” with quarter-mile visibilities and wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. Accumulation is expected to top 2 feet. Light snow will develop by this morning, becoming heavy late in the day into the evening commute,” according to the National Weather Service. “The heaviest snow, especially focused along the I-95 corridor, will fall tonight into Saturday.” Temperatures will be in the upper 20s throughout the storm. The National Weather Service further advises people to avoid using roads during the storm’s peak, when “whiteout conditions are anticipated as roads become snow covered.” The strong winds and heavy snow may cause damage to trees and structures and could result in scattered power outages, the NWS alert states.
