Fire Rips Through Brookline Homes

BROOKLINE (CBS) – A fire caused quite a bit of damage to a large row of town houses in Brookline on Monday.

The blaze broke out at the home on Griggs Road and spread to the unit next door at around 10:30 a.m.

WBZ News Radio 1030’s Carl Stevens reports.

“It’s an absolute miracle it’s a holiday. Thank God we were at home. My husband was in his office in the back and that faces this other unit, Mr. Kravitz’s house. All of a sudden he saw smoke,” said Carol Taylor, a neighbor.

Firefighters responded quickly, but both units sustained significant smoke and water damage.

Everyone managed to get out safely.
