Firefighters battle blaze in Boston’s Back Bay

Residents of a 14-unit, six-story condominium building in the Back Bay were forced out of the brownstone Monday by a one-alarm fire that started on the building’s roof in the late afternoon, a Boston Fire spokesman said.

The fire was reported around 6 p.m. at 182 Beacon St. and had been extinguished by 6:30 p.m., but in a short time the flames burned wildly, driven in part by winds off the Charles River. No one was injured in the blaze, according to Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.
