The building that was struck by a six-alarm blaze Wednesday in Dorchester was almost ready for residents to move in.
And its fire alarm system was set to be inspected Thursday.
“So sad on many levels,” the Boston Fire Department said in a tweet.
The blaze sent dark smoke high in the sky over Dorchester. Flames could be seen at the top of the building at 1971-77 Dorcester Ave.
Fire officials said they could not confirm reports that a generator had caught fire. The blaze appeared to have been centered on the top floor.
One construction worker suffered chest pains, but no one else was injured, officials said.
Move in date for some was to be July 15th. Tomorrow the fire alarm system was going to be inspected. So sad on many levels— Boston Fire Dept. (@BostonFire) June 28, 2017
