The Brookline Music School is holding a concert to benefit the victims of a Cambridge fire last month that displaced 12 people, including a member of the music school.
The benefit concert for the Cambridge fire victims will be held Saturday, Sept. 8 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Brookline Music School at 25 Kennard Road in Brookline.
Brendan Burns, a member of the music school, was one of 12 people left homeless by a three-alarm fire at 95 Columbia Road in Cambridge on Aug. 23.
Six Cambridge Police officers rushed into the burning building and rescued several people from the early morning fire that started in the porch area at the rear of the building.
None of the officers or residents were injured, but two Cambridge firefighters were treated and released from a local hospital.
The fire caused more than $1 million in damage, but firefighters were able to save several instruments from the building, which also housed several other musicians.
To raise awareness and resources for the victims of the fire, the Brookline Music School faculty members and students will perform during the benefit concert Saturday, according to the school.
Anyone interested in performing or making donations to the fire victims can contact Michelle Nover at the Brookline Music School at 617-277-4593 or via email at email@example.com.
