No injuries reported as two-alarm blaze strikes S. Boston supermarket

A two-alarm fire caused $100,000 damage today to a South Boston commercial building undergoing conversion into a Foodies Urban Supermarket, officials said.

The fire is believed to have started in the basement, but then traveled up the walls and into the roof of the one-story brick building at the 230 West Broadway, said Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.
