Residents homeless after condo fire

Fire officials are investigating a five-alarm blaze at an upscale waterfront condominium complex that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage. The fire that broke out about 6:30 p.m. Friday sent flames through the third floor of the brick condominium building on Bow Street, destroying the center portion of the roof and causing extensive damage. No one was injured in the fire. Fire Chief Christopher LeClaire was unsure how many of the building’s 18 condo units were damaged, but he said many residents were displaced.
