Woman, 2 children rescued from Boston fire in ‘great team save’

A two-alarm fire in the South End this morning sent firefighters racing to rescue a woman and two kids who were trapped on the top floor in what’s being hailed as a “great team save.”
The department reported a “heavy fire” was spotted at a four-story apartment house at 68 West Newton Street just after 8 a.m. The fire was quickly “knocked down,” the department added.
“Firefighters rescued a woman and two children from the top floor balcony,” the department tweeted. “A great team save by the members of Ladder 4. Working together for a positive outcome.”
An eyewitnesses tweeted “people were being pulled out the windows” as ladder trucks and firefighters were seen all over the scene — including on the roof.
The fire was reported on a lower floor when firefighters first arrived.
A total of eight people — including the two children — have been displaced, BFD reports. Two pet turtles, a cat and a dog were also safely removed from the brick complex.
The fire hits as the department warned city residents and landlords to “have your heating system checked out. Working Smoke & Carbon Monoxide alarms are required in ALL apartments, condos and houses. Think Safety.”
This is a developing story…
