Marshfield firefighter injured as roof collapses

SCITUATE — An early-morning explosion and fire obliterated a cottage-style house and totaled an adjacent residence on this scenic peninsula, leaving one Marshfield firefighter seriously injured after a roof collapse pinned him under burning debris.

Authorities say three Scituate firefighters were also inside 328 Central Ave. when the roof caved in and narrowly escaped injury.
