Three workers, one firefighter injured in Jamaica Plain fire

Three workers and one firefighter were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries after a fire broke out this morning underneath the basement floor of a Jamaica Plain home, said Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald.

At 9:23 a.m., Boston firefighters responded to 109 Carolina Ave. for a fire in the basement apartment of the 2 ½-story house, said MacDonald.

Workers in the basement were preparing to blow insulation into the walls when the fire broke out in the crawl space beneath them, he said. Firefighters used saws to cut the floorboards and reach the blaze, said MacDonald.

Two of the workers were taken to the hospital for burn injuries and another to get checked out, said MacDonald. The injured firefighter was treated and transported for chest pains, he said.

He said damages were an estimated $100,000.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, said MacDonald.
