None injured in fire at Ashmont home

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.

Correction: Because of incorrect information provided to the reporter, an earlier version of this story incorrectly identified those injured in the fire. The injured were family members of Tom and Rose McMullin.
