Eutaw Street fire leaves 15 homeless

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services and the American Red Cross have found temporary housing for the 15 people displaced by a two-alarm fire that broke out on Eutaw Street last week. 
Just before 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 39, Boston Fire responded to a fire reported at 35 Eutaw St. 
When firefighters arrived they observed smoke and fire coming from the third floor of the three-and-half story multi-family home. 
Seeing that the home was attached to homes next door the fire department immediately ordered a second alarm in order to contain the blaze. 
It took a little over 30 minutes for crews to knock the fire down. 
Chief Joseph Finn said there were no injuries among firefighters that battled the fire or residents that lived in the home. 
He estimated the damages to be about $300,000 and Boston Fire investigators are still investigating the cause of the fire.
