A two-alarm fire in Dorchester yesterday displaced five residents and injured one firefighter, officials said. Firefighters responded to calls for a fire on Maxwell Street around 9:12 a.m., said Steve MacDonald, a Boston Fire Department spokesman. All five residents got out safely, MacDonald said, and one firefighter was sent to Carney Hospital with a head injury, treated, and released. The fire caused about $200,000 in damage.
