The state Land Court and the offices of the Boston Celtics did not sustain any damage today when Boston firefighters responded to a blaze in the Causeway Street building where they are located, officials said.
One person was taken to the hospital for evaluation after the fire at 226-234 Causeway, which was reported at 12:40 p.m., the Boston Fire Department said.
The condo building contains 12 floors. The first six are offices, including the court and the Celtics offices, and use the address 226 Causeway. The higher floors are residential and use the address 234 Causeway. The fire was in a ninth-floor unit.
An automatic sprinkler system activated, dousing the fire, but the building was damaged by the high volume of water as it flowed down to lower floors, said Steve MacDonald, a fire department spokesman.
Damage was estimated at $250,000. The cause of the fire is being investigated, he said.
Joan Kenney, a spokeswoman for the state court system, said there was no damage to the Land Court.
Heather Walker, a spokeswoman for the Celtics, said there was no damage to the Celtics offices. The building was evacuated and everyone filed out in a calm manner, then waited for the all-clear to come back in, she said in an e-mailed statement. The team itself is in Cleveland for a playoff game against the Cavaliers.
