Officials call Allston fire arson
Two cars destroyed in garage; similar blazes hit in ’11
Two cars were destroyed Sunday morning in an Allston garage fire, which officials have declared an arson similar to the string of car fires last fall, a Fire Department spokesman said. “This one follows the pattern of previous Allston fires in that the cars were parked off the street and unattended,” said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Boston Fire Department. “The other fires we’ve had, the cars were in driveways and in backyards.” Firefighters responded to the private one-story detached garage about 8 a.m.
