A one-alarm fire damaged a two-and-a-half story home in Dorchester early this afternoon, Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said.
Fire was showing from the rear of the wood-frame home at 331 Ashmont St. when firefighters arrived at 1:15 p.m., MacDonald said in an official tweet.
The fire was extinguished just after 1:30 p.m. No one was injured.
Tom and Rose McMullin were not injured in the marathon bombing, though two family members, who do not live at the Ashmont Street home, sustained minor injuries. He didn’t say the extent of their injuries.
Damage to the single-family, four-bedroom home was estimated at $250,000, MacDonald said. City assessor records show the home is valued at just over $364,000.Lauren Dezenski can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter @LaurenDezenski.
