BOSTON — Authorities say there were no reported injuries in an eight-alarm blaze in a commercial building in Boston that firefighters quickly brought under control.
An alarm-monitoring company reported the fire at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The fire was under control by about 6 a.m. with firefighters dousing hotspots.
According to broadcast reports, the five-story brick building on Summer Street in South Boston’s ‘‘Innovation District’’ was undergoing renovations.
There were reports of some people in the building, but they made their way out a back entrance.
Firefighters attacked the blaze from outside because of uncertainty over the integrity of the building.
Traffic was diverted from the area.
There was no word on a case.
