One person was taken to the hospital after a fire this morning on Mercer Street in South Boston.
Jennifer Mehigan, a spokeswoman for Boston Emergency Medical Services, said the victim was transported to Boston Medical Center. She didn't know the person's condition. A Boston Fire Department spokesman didn't immediately return messages seeking comment.
After helping out the human fire victims, firefighters turned their attention to the pets, rescuing a dog and two cats. One cat was brought back from the brink by firefighters and emergency medical technicians.
