One person was hospitalized and four people were displaced after an early morning fire burned through a Dorchester triple-decker home, according to the Boston Fire Department.
Around 6:25 a.m., firefighters responded to 83 Holmes Ave., where flames were showing from the third floor of the three-family structure, the department said in a tweet.
A second alarm was ordered once the fire spread to the roof, officials said.
Heavy flames were knocked down by 7:19 a.m., according to a tweet, but firefighters remained at the house for extensive overhauling.
“One person was rescued and taken to the hospital, no other injuries,” officials said.
